Product Description
With this activity, students are challenged to get to the heart of a character of their choice using only 140 characters, just like on Twitter.

For roughly every 50 pages in Katherine Applegate's The One and Only Ivan, the students have to choose a character, create a username for her/him, write a concise tweet that captures a significant moment in the plot, and attach a relevant hashtag.

Considering my students' obsession with all things Twitter, their excitement with this assignment was palpable! Plus, it forced them to read carefully and purposefully because they each wanted the most unique and insightful tweet.
