Fakebook: Analyzing point-of-view in Duck Dynasty


Students will analyze the varying points-of-view in a text by creating two Fakebook pages delineating separate points-of-view. Students will be able to represent two individual people from the text by using a format that they are familiar with and that they enjoy. Students will enjoy creating top friends, uploading photos, and creating posts about individuals in a text.

This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.

Additional Learning Objective(s):

 Preparation Information 

Total Duration:

Greater than 120 Minutes

Materials and Resources:

  • Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty.
  • Venn Diagram
  • Fakebook assessment rubric (attached)

Technology Resources Needed:





  • Students should have completed reading Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty.
  • Students should be familiar with the different types of point-of-view.
  • Students should be able to demonstrate basic command and navigation of a computer.

Before: Students will choose two of their favorite individuals from a text and complete a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting the personalities of the two. Students will turn and share responses with a partner.


1.  Teachers will pull up a blank Fakebook page on an interactive whiteboard or other projection device.

2.  Teachers will let students work with a partner to make a list of at least ten character traits that describe the teacher. This list will assisst students in helping the teacher create a sample Fakebook page.

3.  The teacher will walk students through how to make top friends, upload profile pictures, and create a profile.

After: After walking students through the sample Fakebook, students will be released to create two separate Fakebooks, each focusing on a different character's point-of-view in the text. They may use their Venn Diagrams from earlier in class to aid them in writing the profiles for each character. Each student will present their characters to the class. After each student has presented, other students are welcome to leave characters posts and comments on their presentation.

Assessment Strategies

Students will be assessed on creativity and accuracy of representation of points-of-view.


Students may create a Prezi or PowerPoint incorporating video clips and various other multi-media components to compare and contrast the two characters. These projects may be presented to the class.


Students needing assistance with computer skills may complete one Fakebook page via internet and they may create their other on poster board or in some other creative display.
