Put a new spin on the old character sketch with this Facebook activity for To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Today's student will love coming up with catchy status updates for the characters and fun profiles and Facebook Walls.
It allows them to look at the events of the novel from the character's viewpoint (and isn't that what this novel is all about?). The sample Facebook wall for Scout Finch is included and does not have plot spoilers, so it can be used early in the novel.
This is the Microsoft Word .doc version, but I also offer a PDF version here:
If you are a Mac user, email me and I can send it to you in Pages. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The student handouts do not include the novel title, so they can be used over and over for different novels.
Key words: Boo Radley, Tom Robinson, Scout Finch, Atticus Finch, Jem, Calpurnia, Miss Maudie, Dill Harris, Walter Cunningham
