Alicia, the best way to ask this question would be to post it in the DIscussion forum of the New Media and Tech Groups and the American Lit Groups. Since not everyone is an ELA teacher here you might explain it is a Hawthorne short story and give a short summary.

Some quick ideas:

You could have them make a Mind Map of the story using trial versions of Inspiration. www.inspiration.com

You could have them create voice threads of the story: http://voicethread.com/#home

You could have them make comic interpretations of the story using www.mycomicbookcreator.com, www.comiclife.com or www.bitstrips.com or MakeBeliefsComix.com

You could have them create MySpace of Facebook pages for the characters - Lauren drops a template here.

Also see this: http://charactercounts.org/hmail/0108-Chron-Facebook-lesson.pdf

There is also a hysterical book of literary Facebook parodies Ophelia Joined the Group Maidens Who Don't Float: Classic Lit Signs on to Facebook

On and you can have the characters engage in a txt message dialogue - see the famous R&J text message.

Hopefully that will get you started!!

Ryan:)
