2 Direct Instruction
We will explain how language is different now than it was when different works were writtern. We will also explain what point of view and I will show examples of different people's point ov view. I will highlight some famous people's twitter pages and conversations. (will check ahaead of time to make they are all appropriate)
3 Guided Practice
I will open a todaysmeet.com page and have a discussion with my students about current events. We will then do a current topic and I will have students choose sides.
4 Independent Practice
With a partner, the students will write out their twitter style conversation/debate. They will review eachothers' work. They wil then go to another groups and review that groups work and make suggestions.
The students will use Twitter or Todaysmeet.com to have their twitter like debate/conversation. If the technology is not available the students can write their conversations on a whiteboard or poster board. We will then do a Gallery walk through of the students displaying their work.
The teacher will cover any missing information.
