A free, fun, and simple website that can be used by teachers and students. The possibilities are endless. Here are a couple of ways I would use Fakebook in my classroom:
1.) Delivery of Author Biography Information-Instead of lecturing about the life of an author, create a Fakebook page for that author to share with your students. It's a unique and fun way to teach about the life of an author, and student's will be sure to enjoy. Check out my example, William Shakespeare's Fakebook page.
2.) Student Created Character Pages-Instead of creating character maps, students can create a Fakebook page for their assigned characater. It's an assignment that students will be excited about turning in!
Here's how it works:
1.) Go to http://www.classtools.net/FB/home-page
2.)Add desired information to Fakebook page (name/birthdate/family/friends/likes/work/etc.)
3.)Upload profile and cover photo.
4.) Post status updates, links, videos, images.
5.) Save you Fakebook page (create a password for you page, so you can edit it later)
6.) Share with students or print handouts!!!
Don't have time to create your own? That's fine! Fakebook has a gallery of previously created Fakebook pages.
