High School kids love their cell phones!
Enhance students' understanding of character development!
This is a creative assignment I designed to evaluate students' understanding of characters in the novels they read for book reports; however, it can be used with any characters from literature or history...even current "characters" in the news.
The directions for the activity are as follows:
--Imagine that your character exists in our society.
--Imagine a phone homepage that displays his or her apps.
--Choose apps from the following options, and then complete the
illustration/discussion component for each. (Brief description= 154-259 words).
---You may be comical, but be sure to accurately represent your character’s traits.
---You will be evaluated on creativity and evidence of your understanding of the plot
I provide a blank cell phone where students draw or paste a background.
They must then choose options under categories that include:
---Entertainment (Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube)
---Social connections (Facebook, Instagram, and match.com)
---Shopping on Amazon
---Self-indulgence (selfies, bitmoji, ringtones, games).
Students discuss why their character would have accessed or posted various items.
Because I created this project with Word, it is editable and you can customize it for use in your classroom.
The kids really love this project, and I get awesome results.
