You will be embarking on a biography assignment about an important person of note from the French and Indian War or the American Revolution. The uniqueness of the assignment is that you are required to create a fictitious Twitter account for your person. All Twitter posts will be completed in the discussion portion of our Schoology course for this unit. You must do this in 140 characters or less.
Post 1 – Statement of Philosophy and Profile Picture. Explain why you are a Patriot * Loyalist * Neutralist
Post 2 - Who will you follow on Twitter. Consider your formal and informal network. People/Places/Organizations
Post 3 – Tweet about your reaction to a high profile event discussed in class. What would your historical figure “tweet” after this event?
Post 4 - Tweet about your reaction to an event of your own choice (outside of class discussion). What would your historical figure “tweet” after this event?
Post 5 – Tweet with your epitaph (a phrase or statement written in memory of a person who has died, especially as an inscription on a tombstone. Oxford Dictionaries)
