PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

For this assignment, students should make corrections on Tweets from various celebrities. Most of the celebrities are famous musicians, and I also included one athlete. I tell my students that they should make corrections as if they were using the Tweets in a formal paper for English class. The Tweets are recent, as of April 2014.

When I do this assignment with my students, I do a few examples as a group, and then give them time to work on correcting the Tweets by themselves. Once the students have corrected the Tweets, we go over the corrections as a class.

This is also a good option to use for substitute plans or makeup work if students miss school, as it is fairly easy to do with the students and self-explanatory.

This is a great way for students to understand common errors that people make when they are texting. Many times, students text so much that they begin to write papers as if they were texting (e.g. gonna, dis, lack of punctuation, etc). This activity allows students to recognize errors and make corrections to those errors.
