Today as I was browsing Larry Ferrlazzo’s resourceful website, I came across this post on the best tools for ELLs in which he mentioned Fakebook. I have already reviewed this tool a year ago but since then some new interesting updates have been added making Fakebook a powerful web tool to use with students in class.
Fakebook allows teachers and students to create fake or imaginary profile pages that resemble real Facebook pages. There are different ways you can use Fakebook with students. You can, for instance, use it to chart the plot of a book, chronicle the development of a character, document a series of historical events,or simply to highlight debates, relationships,connections between people and may more.
