Character study assignments using social media templates can spell disaster if they lack clear boundaries! We all know that students will rush to fill in the blanks and images according to what they "believe" and not what was actually said or has taken place in the text. A good character study assignment does not rely heavily on hyperbole or the imagination, but it does call for students to actually read and comprehend the text.
What makes this condensed fakebook profile page SPECIAL, is that it is accompanied by a second page (to be printed double sided) for students to cite the text. The added Prove It! page on the back requires students to closely read the text and complete the character profile with information that is explicitly found in the text or can be inferred from the text.
Because students are NOT required to cite every piece of demographic information (only 11 citations required), there is still plenty of room for creativity and hyperbole!
