Fortnite has overtaken my high school classroom! In an effort to motivate my students to put their phones down, I have created this assignment to use in class. I hope it is helpful for you, also!
Update: I'm in the process of making this a digital item that you can use on platforms like Google Classroom. As I make each product below digital-friendly, you will see "Google Classroom Ready" next to the description.
Please Note: Every few months, Fortnite will come out with a new story line. Some of the pieces of this assignment may relate to a different version of Fortnite than what your students are playing.
★ 1 page article about Fortnite - a quick overview that briefly hits on the pros and cons of video game usage among teens, especially the impact of violent video games that involve killing, like Fortnite. Google Classroom Ready
★ A 4-question multiple choice quiz for the Fortnite article. Focuses on revising, purpose, and vocab. Google Classroom Ready
★ Answer key to quiz mentioned above.
★ An expository essay prompt about the impact of video game usage among teens. The students don't have to focus solely on Fortnite, which is great for the students who don't play the game. Google Classroom Ready
★ A persuasive essay prompt asking students to take a position on video game usage. The expository essay prompt and persuasive essay prompt are very similar, so I recommend only assigning one to your kids. Google Classroom Ready
★ A 1-page sheet to help guide students with the brainstorming process for their essay: it prompts them to answer the who, what, and why. Google Classroom Ready
★ 1 page comma usage practice worksheet that is Fortnite themed --
★ 1 page "Building an Argument" graphic organizer to help students organize thoughts. Could be fun to use in a class debate on the topic of Fortnite, or it could be used for any argument topic! Preview Here
