Description

This writing activity is fun and easy to use, while also requiring students to use critical thinking skills and text evidence writing. It’s also versatile! Students can create a desktop and blog for a literary character, an author, a person from history, or even a pop culture character.

Students will choose a character, author, or historic figure, and design him/her a desktop and blog. It will include tabs and bookmarks for a site the character has recently visited, an organization they belong to, and a self-help site they would benefit from. Students will explain their choices by filling out the evidence chart on the back.

Students will then use the desktop center to design the character’s blog, which will include the character’s 1st person account of an event from the book. For a real person, this will be an event from the person’s life.

This is easy to use, and it’s a terrific culminating activity for a book or author study. It would also be perfect to leave for a sub!

Think about the colorful and informative bulletin board display you'll have when you're finished!
