Make learning about character traits fun with this hashtag activity. Appeal to students use of technology and social media while teaching.
- two silhouettes (male and female)
- textual evidence worksheets
- pre-written miniature hashtags
- ideas for implementation
Through this activity students are asked to analyze the characterization present in literature by assigning appropriate hashtags and then defending them with textual evidence. I've used this in my class for the past three years and my middle school students love it.
