Product Description
In a world of online dating, this activity really sparks students' interest!

I love this lesson in characterization, and my students have such a great time with it, too.

It may be used with any novel, play, or short story. I feel as though this lesson really gets students to think deeper about their assigned (or selected) characters. It requires higher order thinking to make inferences and predictions about characters. Students are required to ask “what if” questions. They are required to attempt to think like the character, and they are required to be creative.

I explain to the students that they will be making a dating profile for a character we are currently studying or have recently studied. Sometimes I let the students pick the character; while other times, I assign the character. Also, students sometimes work in pairs on this assignment, and sometimes it’s independent work. It just depends on the class dynamic.

This lesson includes: notes/instructions for the teacher, some funny dating profiles that I use to launch this lesson, the dating profile activity, and a blank Tinder Dating Profile template.

Good luck, and I hope you get some excellent use from this product.
