A few weeks ago I blogged about the AMAZING Fakebook Powerpoint Nicholas Provanzano created in PPT & shared on Slideshare. I even purchased the Discovery Teacher set of Farcebook blank posters & fictional characters examples that I mentioned in the blog - SWEET!
We laminated the blank posters so that kids could write on them with dry-erase markers or yes, overhead pens [gasp!]... There are times in our school (like right now) where getting into the iMacLab or using the MacBook mobile labs is difficult due to standardized & computerized testing. These high engagement low tech alternatives are GREAT!
But I wanted MORE! So, I re-imagined and re-worked the framework, changed the name to Fakebook, changed some of the text & wording.
Created in ComicLife in I exported the image as a .jpeg and inserted into a MS Word doc. You'll need LEGAL SIZE paper to print it but I think it looks real cool! I showed it around to my super cool teachers & they liked it!
In a few weeks Mrs. Cullison's & Miss Buerger's 7th grade English classes are coming in to the library to do Mythology research & we're gonna have the kids create Fakebook pages for their chosen gods or goddesses!

"Oh Apollo, you're so talented..I love how you play your lyre but boyee why do you have to play so hard to get? I know you can see into the future so can't you see I'm tired of Ares? I'll be at Delphi tomorrow - we need to talk! Bloop!"

If you already have ComicLife I included the Comicdoc version for you that you're welcome to tweak to your heart's content - It's Creative Commons so just keep the attribution please!
Oh...and why Fakebook.uk? Well, being of Welsh & Celtic descent - I'm a tried and true hardcore BBC America, Torchwood & Dr. Who loving, Brit-ophile, & delightfully pretentious git, OR any excuse to write "favourite!"
