Students need to connect to their history content and classroom literature. I have found that this is a great way to do just that. They already spend vast amounts of time on social networking sites, so why not use that to your advantage? This assignment allows students to have more fun in the research and story process and puts information into a framework that they are familiar with. It can even be fun by having students dress up as characters or historical figures so they can make their own profile picture! It works great as a history profile or character map.
