Product Description
Student's can't take their eyes off their phones!
Change that fascination with social media into fascination with Hansberry's characterization in A Raisin in the Sun

CHARACTER’S SMART PHONE


-----What does Walter have on his Amazon wish list?

-----What’s on Beneatha’s song playlist? Does Ruth have a bitmoji?

-----Does George have a dating profile?


Enhance students' understanding of character development!

This is a creative assignment I designed to evaluate students' understanding of characters inA Raisin in the Sun; however, it can be used with any character from literature or history....even current "characters" in the news.
The directions for the activity are as follows:

--Imagine that your character exists in our society.

--Imagine a phone homepage that displays his or her apps.

--Choose apps from the following options, and then complete the

illustration/discussion component for each. (Brief description= 150-225 words).

---You may be comical but be sure to accurately represent your character’s traits.

---You will be evaluated on creativity and evidence of your understanding of the plot
and character.

I provide a blank cell phone where students draw or paste a background.

They must then choose options under categories that include:

---Entertainment (Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube)

---Social connections (Facebook, Instagram, and match.com)

---Shopping on Amazon

---Legitimate news

---Self-indulgence (selfies, bitmoji, ringtones, games).

Students discuss why their character would have accessed or posted various items.



The kids really love this project, and I get awesome results.

Fun to grade too!

Thank you for your consideration of this resource.
