Description

Overview:
Students will pick a character from whichever text they are currently reading and create a fake social media profile. The original creator mentions that this can be done digitally, but says she has her students do it on poster board. Many students find the technology more engaging and can use it to look up and translate unknown words quickly. So I have provided the Google Slides templates for Twitter, Snapchat, Twitter, and Facebook.
Having students work this way combines 21st century skills, and allows for students that are unfamiliar with words from the text to have access to a resource immediately.

I would also have students work in pairs so that it is more collaborative. It is a "social" project.

The rubric gives clear expectations.

Students should NOT use real social media sites to create their profiles.
