This strategy is designed to capitalize on student interest in teachnology and in "surfing the net."

Students will create a "home page" for a character that they have selected from their reading. Their selection should be of a major character that they know lots about. Students will write the home page from the perspective of the character.



The page should include the following basic information:

Personal information:
age
family
school
friends

Characteristics:
"what I look like..."
"what I am like..."
