With the rise of social media, more and more teachers engage their students online with projects and assignments. Increasingly, I have seen fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter where students are posting on behalf of a literary character or historical figure.
Thanks to ClassTools, you can engage your students in the creation of fake Facebook profiles & BIOGRAPHIES without actually using the social media.
ClassTools has developed a program called Fakebook that allows users to easily and quickly create fake Facebook profiles & biographies. It is simple, free, and easy-to-use! Simply plug in information, pictures, friends, and biography data, and then publish with the click of a button. You can also embed the profile into any webpage and download it for offline sharing.
For more information take a look at these great examples, and check out the screenshot below of an example Fakebook profile for Brigham Young:
How might we use this in the classroom, you ask? Have students create “Fakebook” profiles and biographies of someone they know who is still alive . (TASK on page 115/ 125-150 WORDS))
Happy faking, y’all!
LISTEN TO THIS SONG BY U2 AND FILL IN THE GAPS WITH EXAMPLES OF THE PRESENT PERFECT:
I (1) ________________the highest mountains.
I (2) ________________through the fields
only to be with you,
only to be with you.
I (3) ________________.
I (4) ________________.
I (5) ________________these city walls,
these city walls,
only to be with you.
But I still (6) ________________what I’m looking for.
But I still (7) ________________ what I’m looking for.
I (8) ________________hardened lips.
Felt the healing fingertips.
It burned like fire–
this burning desire.
I (9) ________________with the tongue of angels.
I (10) ________________the hand of a devil,
It was warm in the night.
I was cold as a stone.
But I still (11) ________________what I’m looking for.
But I still (12) ________________what I’m looking for.
I believe in the kingdom come,
then all the colors will bleed into one,
bleed into one.
Well, yes I’m still running.
You broke the bonds
and you loosed the chains,
carried the cross
of my shame,
of my shame.
You know I believed it.
But I still (13) ________________ what I’m looking for.
But I still (14) ________________ what I’m looking for.
But I still (15) ________________ what I’m looking for.
