Ben Stiller has published a recording of the classic Thurber story, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” to promote his feature film interpretation of the story. You can find the original short story here: pdf and the recording here: audio version
Students who’ve seen the movie might be interested in hearing the source material. The episodic nature of the story invites “fan fiction” versions. Students could try to capture Thurber’s voice and write an additional scene.
