1. Please describe your Pinterest project.
Students read William Shakespeare’s , Julius Caesar. In order for them to understand and analyze characterization, students chose one character to role-play and used the social networking website, Pinterest to complete this characterization assignment. Students are able to connect with their character by using modern every day connections.
2. What was your favorite part of the project?
My favorite part of the project was observing student engagement. A number of students were unaware of this website, and after they started using this resource, they found that they could utilize it both personally and educationally.
3. What was your students’ favorite part of the project?
After having students complete a reflective analysis, I was able to receive opinions of this project.
“Using Pinterest was almost like an online, more creative version of a character chart, allowing us the see what the characters may have liked, how they may have lived, etc. With this, we were then able to create the character analysis paper.”
” I gained more knowledge on the characters individually but also how they interacted with the other characters which was more beneficial for my comprehension.”
” I discovered that Pinterest is actually a really fun project! It was easier after I started and everybody started commenting on each other’s boards. It almost took me to another world while reading things others had posted, because it seemed so realistic, just with a modern day twist.”
4. Are you able to share the student learning objectives, a rubric, or a model project?
