Students need to learn to use concise language, and there is no better way to get them to do that than with a medium most of them are already familiar with.
This lesson plan is constructed so that you can use it several different ways. You may have each student read the same article and Tweet their summaries, or you can have several groups of students read different articles (the articles vary in degree of difficulty) and present to the class.
With this purchase you will get:
* A Twitter form
* A group form
* An example article, Tweet, and caption to model expectations for students
* 11 very interesting non-fiction news articles taken from the web (topics include a museum that has Galileo’s fingers and teeth on display, a couple that kissed for 58 straight hours, a woman with a seeing-eye rat, a real zombie apocalypse alert that aired on TV, a cat born with two faces, a man who built a rocket pack and flew over the Grand Canyon, a store that sells zombie defense weapons, and more).
