This is a great lesson that can be used for a fun way to expand writing, a current events class, or for anyone willing to work on class dynamics. Students have a full conversation about a particular topic of choice using hashtags with each other.
I use the concept of a hashtag and explain its importance. Student then use the hashtag for an assignment, which I provide directions for. In this listing you get a powerpoint with media and visual aids, an assignment sheet which gives you directions and an assessment rubric, and a list of step by step directions, which can also be used for sub plans if this is what you're intending it for.
In my contemporary issues class students learn about Social Media and how it keeps people connected---this assignment can also be used to help enhance creative writing for students in the middle or high school grades.
