Product Description
Students love their cell phones!
Here's a ways to use their fascination with social media to develop their fascination with Shakespeare's characterization in Hamlet


-----Does Hamlet have a playlist?

-----What's in Ophelia's online shopping cart?

-----Does Claudius have a dating profile have his own bitmoji?

Enhance students' awareness of character development!

This is a creative assignment I designed to evaluate students' understanding of characters in the play; however, it can be used with any characters 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= 150-225 words).

---You may be comical, but be sure to accurately represent your character’s traits.

---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)

---Shopping on Amazon

---Legitimate news

---Self-indulgence (selfies, bitmoji, ringtones, games).

Students discuss why their character would have accessed or posted various items.


The kids really love this project, and I get awesome results.
