The Dating Profile Project is a fun way for students to demonstrate their understanding of a genre or as an introduction to the characters in a novel.
I have included a few different styles of this product, as it can easily be applied to almost any unit, the Gothic version being my favorite. It would also go well with a Transcendentalist unit – students could create a profile for Thoreau, Emerson, Whitman, etc. Although these authors preferred to be on their own, I can still see their families saying, “When are you going to stop being a hermit and find yourself a nice girl?!”
Each project comes with its own version of the rubric. Each project has its own editable file. There is also a more visually appealing PDF option.
Good luck and please contact me if you have any questions or comments!
