For each chapter of The Last Historian students compose a tweet that the main character, Cassie, would send. To make it easier on the students I modified the number of characters that can be used. This is to emphasize the importance of proper punctuation, spelling and composition. The assignment states that each tweet cannot be more than 110 characters, not including spaces and punctuation.
Can be extended to include the entire novel.
An excellent activity to work on short, concise summaries as well as getting students to better identify with characters.
