Students love their phones!
Here's a great way to have them turn their fascination with cell phones into a fascination with the characters in Fahrenheit 451!
---What apps would Montag have on his phone?
---What would he watch on Netflix (I hope not the new Fahrenheit 451 movie; he'll be disappointed!)
---What would be in his Amazon shopping cart? Some books?
Enhance students' awareness of character development!
This is a creative assignment I designed to evaluate students' understanding of characters in Fahrenheit 451; however, it can be used with any character 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 as we’ve discussed them so far in the novel.
You will be evaluated on creativity and evidence of your understanding of the plot and character.---
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),
