Facebook activity templates for any novel or nonfiction text - aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Includes Microsoft Word templates to share with students in a 1:1, BYOD, or paperless classroom.
This IS included in my Literature Activities for ANY Novel or Nonfiction Text, Volume 1
This is the full version of the Facebook Character sketch lesson in Microsoft Word. *Updated to include NEW Facebook Layout Pages with the new "Timeline" format, separate student copies, a short status-update & friends activity that is great for bell ringers or a closing activity, AND the PDF versions. These are all provided for you in a zipped folder.*
I also updated the unit so it can be used for any subject area: language arts, history (for a historical figure), science, math, music, art, etc.
It includes several activities and reproducibles (the Word version can be modified, as well). Not only can students create a Character profile, but they can make a "wall," create gifts or applications that go along with the assigned literature, and write status updates (in place of chapter summaries).
This lesson does NOT require computer usage; I've even included a page with a sample Facebook page as an example. However, it can be adapted by the teacher to be used on poster board or edited in a Word document. But everything you need is downloadable; no additional preparation is required. Includes a grading criteria outline for grading for completion and a sample grading checklist rubric.
Students find this assignment more meaningful and enjoyable. Those who are creative have an outlet; those who are more analytical are still appeased.
Is adaptable to any novel, short story, play, poem, etc. Other subject areas can use it for historical biographies, researching a famous person in that field, etc. Students can even use it for scientific terms. If a cell had a Facebook page, who would it be friends with? What would it have as its status update?
