Use Twitter to Tweet the characters from ANY Novel or Play
This lesson is great to use with novels for Middle School up to High School. I've used it with great success teaching The Hunger Games, The Great Gatsby and Romeo & Juliet.
This power point outlines how to use Twitter to get students to interact with ANY novel or play. It gives step-by-step instructions for how to use Twitter to "Tweet a novel or play" You can use this technique to help students interact works like The Great Gatsby, The Hunger Games, To Kill a Mockingbird, Romeo & Juliet or any work of literature.
Imagine, students can follow several character feeds from the novel or play that your class is reading.
Because the Tweets are so short, students can read them in easy to follow bursts. They can stay updated on the plot and characters from any novel or play that your class is reading. There is nothing like being immersed into the lives of the characters. They get to experience what Gatsby or Katness is feeling, and seeing through his or her tweets.
Using Twitter feeds, students can participate in literature in a new, exciting way that uses their own media devices.
Students access their social media all the time anyway, why not use this resource in a positive, educational way?
Find out how to set up Twitter accounts for your students, create interactive Twitter feeds for characters and TOTALLY involve your students using media devices your students already possess.
