A free, editable project to use while teaching Moby Dick. Students choose (or are assigned) a character and create a Facebook page for that character. This Word Document lists the requirements for the project, and asks students to incorporate direct quotes into certain sections. However, there is plenty of room for the students to be creative! The assignment also asks them to write a reflection. A basic rubric is included.
I recommend breaking the students up into groups of 2-4. The characters I have them choose from are Ahab, Ishmael, Queequeg, Starbuck, Stubb, and Flask. I typically have them pull slips out of a hat. If you are using this with a big class, you can also use Tashtego, Daggoo, and Elijah.
This was originally created for a senior class.
