Twitter essay

poundLike the one-minute essay, this summary activity engages a familiar form for students and also teaches about effective communication.

In small groups, pairs or individually, students create a 140 character summary of a salient point from a discussion.  Challenge students further by encouraging them to create a meaningful phrase that’s also catchy enough to encourage people to read more.
