These days students use social media on a regular basis. Almost every student has a smartphone or gets on the internet and knows all the ins and outs of sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
The idea behind this lesson is to bring what makes social media appealing into the classroom by connecting to the common idea of Throwback Thursday.
Let me first explain the idea of Throwback Thursday for the ones out there who may not be familiar:
Popular on sites like Instagram, each Thursday many users post pictures from years ago of themselves, other people, places, and anything else that they like to consider “back in the day.”
Here’s how you can incorporate this into ANY classroom!
