I accept Tweets for Credit

29 Apr

So you like to Tweet do you???  Well, now is your chance to Tweet for credit.  You will have the opportunity to Tweet class updates and notes of interest.  Be sure that I know who you are (I have no one named Suzy’s BFF or Sexy1, etc.) and you can receive class participation credit.

Hashtags to use

  • #BS121 – General class update information
  • #Plot121 – Updates and remarks about plot elements from readings
  • #Voc121 – Updates about use of interesting vocabulary words from our readings
  • #Ref121 – Updates about thoughts and feelings evoked by our readings

How you can get credit for Tweets

  1. Include at least one of the hashtags above
  2. If you use @MsBsScholars be sure to initial your tweet so that I know who gets credit OR if you’re using your Twitter name leave me a note in the inbox telling me your name and your Twitter name
  3. Your tweet must be spelled correctly. You have about 120 characters so some abrev. is acceptable. SOME is ok, I don’t want all text speak.
  4. If you don’t Tweet, leave me a note on a post it/notepad sheet.  Same guidelines apply: sign them and write so that I can understand.

I will be giving you some Tweet starters to help out.
