Take advantage of your students' understanding of social media and have students respond to books they're reading. Students demonstrate knowledge by creating a "schoolbook" page, creating pictures, postings, quotes, and even character traits for the main character in their book.
A student note sheet and rubric are included. You determine the point value for the project. I have the students make notes for themselves on the top of the page, then they turn it in and I use the rubric to make my comments and score the project.
