This EDITABLE worksheet will help your students engage with the characters in any piece of literature! This two-page handout has spaces for 4 Instagram uploads, wherein students create a profile picture, a picture post, write a description of the picture, and create hashtags (with citations!) for each post. Use the hashtag option to formatively assess literary term mastery, such as #directcharactization v. #indirectcharacterization, or #protagonist v. #antagonist...whatever you are covering in your classroom!
I return to this activity for multiple texts throughout the year because my students enjoy it so much; I'd love to hear feedback on how your students used it, too!
