Product Description
Students are fascinated with their phones!
Turn that fascination with social media into fascination with Steinbeck's characterization in Of Mice and Men


-----What songs would be on George's playlist?

-----What would you find in Lennie's online shopping cart?

-----Does Curley's wife have a dating profile?


Enhance students' awareness of character development!

This is a creative assignment I designed to evaluate students' understanding of characters in Of Mice and Men; however, it can be used with any character from literature or history...even current "characters" in the news.

The directions for the activity are as follows:

--Imagine that your character exists in our society.

--Imagine a phone homepage that displays his or her apps.

--Choose apps from the following options, and then complete the illustration/discussion component for each. (Brief description= 150-225 words).You may be comical, but be sure to accurately represent your character’s traits as we’ve discussed them so far in the novel.

--You will be evaluated on creativity and evidence of your understanding of the plot and character.---

I provide a blank cell phone where students draw or paste a background. T

hey must then choose options under categories that include:

---Entertainment (Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube),

---social connections (Facebook, Instagram, and match.com),

---shopping on Amazon,

---legitimate news, and

---self-indulgence (selfies, bitmoji, ringtones, games).

Students are required to discuss why their character would have accessed or posted various items.

The kids really love this project and I get awesome results.
