We’ll start Friday’s class with our new version of PrimeTime. Scour the internet for a few moments, find an article about a topic of interest to you, post a link to the article on your blog and then make our three text connections:
- Text to Text
- Text to Self
- Text to World
After PrimeTime, we will take a look at Flocabulary SAT #1: Transformations as well as the Quizlet flashcards for that same set of words. We’ll do a little quick review of the words and then come back to them a few minutes later.
We will quickly review point-of-view: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, as well as the concepts of objective, limited, and omniscient points of view.
Then we are going to examine an article from Ms. Murphy about the power of Twitter to cause both great things and terrible things in the world. Just last week the stock market plunged because of a fake tweet. That’s scary.
Where do we go from there? We’ll fuse all of this together. Using this cool fake Twitter tool, we’ll create fake tweets using Twister about the article using words from Flocabulary SAT #1: Transformation. WHAT?!?! Yes. That will happen.
And then we will share tolerance projects.
