This is a dating profile template that I created to use in my history class, but could easily be used in an English or Reading class as well. The idea behind it was to provide students a fun way to explore a historical figure or character, by filling out their "dating profile" (like a match.com profile) and then having to write the first "love letter" to a significant other (real or imagined). It's research, creativity, and literacy all wrapped into a single fun project. Students love it!
The example in the template is John Scopes (from the 1920s "Scopes Monkey Trial"), but photos and text can all be edited by students.
