This is a great handout to give students to clearly explain what is expected for their facebook page. These directions can be adapted and changed to fit different content areas such as literary characters, scientists, famous figures, etc. There is a sample rubric at the bottom, which can easily be changed. You can include these directions with the facebook template or have students create their own pages and layouts but incorporating all the sections listed on the directions.
Requiring students to cite evidence on the wall and throughout is a great way to support the shift to common core standards.
