Today's assignment

  1. Complete chapters 1-9 on Blog/Twitter assignment

What you'll be graded on

Make each of your Tweet's look like the work that I did. Check on my example in the Mini lesson section above. 

  • Each tweet should be almost (but not more than) 140 characters.
  • Each tweet should include the page number.
  • Include retweets, hashtags, pictures, links, and anything else you think would make your characters’ feed more authentic.
  • Each comment should be at least 3 sentences. It should explain your tweet. It should be written like you write at school (i.e. it shouldn't be written using "twitter language")
