This non-fiction lesson includes a link to an article where the author reflects on an “existential crisis” that lead to a decision to “kill” her Facebook persona. She references several well known philosophers as she questions the balance between real and on-screen life.
This lesson asks students to illustrate an understanding of the reading as they reflect on their own social media use. They will answer questions based on the article and write two paragraphs that require them to think critically about their own beliefs about social media. A rubric is provided if you would like to assess students’ written work.
Finally, you will have a whole class discussion where students will debate the pros and cons of Facebook use.
This package includes instructions, question sheets, and answer key and rubrics. There is also a series of slides that help guide your discussion.
