So I decided to do fake facebook accounts with my Grade 9 Highschool Class for Midsummer Night's Dream. I saw "Shakesbook" and "Fakebook" assignments online and used them as inspiration to create this project. Students had 2 computer lab classes to complete the assignment and most finished easily in that time, while some needed to take extra time at home to finish.
Below I have posted the instructions, marking rubric and sources as well as some links to a few samples from my students.
Fakebook Profile for a Main Character
1. Choose one of the main characters.
2. Create a "fakebook" profile for the character that reflects what you know about them.
3. Write 5 status updates for the character that relate to major events in the plot and
accurately reflect the characters personality.
4.Create 10 or more responses to the statuses from other characters.
5. You may have MORE posts if you wish.
6. Ensure the statuses are in reverse chronological order with most recent at the top.
7. Include your name and block at the bottom of the page.
8. Save a copy for your files and print a copy to turn in.
Minimum 5 Status Updates that reflect characters personalities and refer to major events in the
plot in chronological order. /5
Minimum 10 replies reflect characters personalities and relationships. /5
Profile details reflect character and show understanding of character. /5
Creative, correct formatting, appearance resembles template/examples. /5
You may use any of the below resources to create your page or create your own as long as it
contains all the criteria:
1. Fakebook is an online ap. You can click to edit and create a page then save and print.
2. Facebook template for Microsoft Word.
3. I have several templates I will share with the class.
