PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fiction & Non-Fiction Twitter Tweet Common Core Activity: Use the Twitter Concept to Make Connections to the Text

Using Twitter to Make Connections: Do you want to see if your students grasped the main idea or big event in a chapter or story but don't want to assign a boring chapter review? Use this "Twitter Tweet" activity--it's fun, fast, and you'll be able to tell right away if they read it/got it!

Use in social studies for historical figures, science for chapter summary, and so many other content areas!

Great for exit slips or bell ringers. Aligned with the Common Core State Standards for ELA, grades 6-12.

Use of the phrase "Twitter Tweet" and the Twitter logo bird is approved by Twitter (www.twitter.com) for the educational purposes of this lesson, but is not endorsed by or affiliated with Twitter or any of its affiliates. You can follow me on Twitter @MrsOrman and @HGLessons

Hi... sorry to bother you but for some reason I cannot open the Twitter activity. Adobe says there is an error and it could not be fixed. Is there a problem with the download or is it my computer?

Thanks

Hi Tracy,
Thanks for the quick reply. Waited until I got home from school and it worked just perfectly.

Much too simplisic for a common core lesson or middle/high school students!
On  February 17, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Sorry you were disappointed; however I did list it for exit slips/bell ringers, so yes, it is a simple assignment. But they are very effective short assessments to see who has actually read/paid attention and is understanding the material. Not every assessment needs to be a rigorous test--we teachers are constantly assessing our students through discussions, observations, and written materials. This is just one method of evaluating their learning.

A+ idea! I love this. Extension I am pondering: Assign groups of students to be a certain character throughout reading a novel. They have to create the character's profile, and post chapterly (or another time-frame) posts on your virtual paper blog. Assign one group to be all supporting characters, and rotate groups every several chapters, so students get practice walking in the shoes of all characters. At the end, review your blog and see if any character would delete a prior post due to growth/change in opinions! Assign specific tasks, such as post about: who I am?, character's favorite quote, my POV on x situation, etc.

Product Questions & Answers

On  September 5, 2012Anna Colley (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Tracee,

I'm not sure if you remember me from the forums, but I am the book review editor for the Tchr2Tchr blog. I wanted to invite you to be a guest reviewer and write a book review for us. I don't remember having you do a review for us in the past, even though you're one of the most popular sellers as far as book-related products go! You could review any book of your choice (Hunger Games or something else) and link your related products at the bottom of the review. Book reviews can be short; the minimum is 200 words, so a paragraph or two. We would also link your store and your blog to the review.

If you're interested you can find all of the details here:
http://tchr2tchr.blogspot.com/p/collaborate.html

Thanks for considering collaborating with us!

Thanks, Anna! Yes, I think I intended to do one some point, then school got in the way. lol I will do one; if not for The Hunger Games, I'd love to do The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. I'll work on that this weekend! Thanks, Anna.
