PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What if Juliet had a Twitter account? What about Winston Smith or Katniss Everdeen? In this activity, students create the twitter feed of a fictional character in order to explore character motivations, plot, perspective, identity, and language. Students will have a blast drawing bio pics, writing their character's about me, choosing who their character would follow, and deciding what would be trending in their character's world.

This pdf packet includes:
1. Blank Twitter feed for students to complete.
2. Extra page of tweets.
3. Sample Juliet Capulet Twitter feed.

How to use this activity:
Depending on the lesson, teachers could use this resource to facilitate student exploration of:

-Language: Students update well-known dialogue from literature into "twitter speak" and analyze the differences.

-Character: Students analyze character motivation by tweeting what characters were thinking before they chose something.

-Plot: Students tweet major plot points from character's perspective.

-Perspective: Students tweet the thoughts, feelings, reactions of characters other than the narrator or main character.
