Product Description
In the last couple of years cell phone use (and students’ abilities to sneak them) has exploded in classrooms. I decided that rather than fight it, I would try to embrace it in the classroom. I did a version of this assignment last year and the students LOOOOOOOVED it. It was right in their wheelhouse of ability! Using common cell phone tactics seemed to jump-start their brains into making character inferences in a way that other assignments just couldn’t. .

This product asks the students to create an cell phone background for a book character.

I include instruction pages with and explanation on how I use this product as well!

Common Core this product covers:

o CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.8.1 Cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
