Lesson Description

Trick Or Tweet promises to engage your students in rhetorical analysis, close reading, and critical thinking using a framework that is innovative and fun — but, make no mistake, this is a rigorous lesson!

Students will have the opportunity to work independently, with a partner, or in a small group to identify and analyze tweets of interest before facilitating a discussion of these tweets with the class.  A gamified twist that requires each group to fabricate, analyze, and share a third tweet promises to make this lesson memorable, fun, and awesome.
