4º British: The Great War in 140 characters strings

Today you will start a new historical activity, an experiment in History... twitter in class! Yes, you have read correctly: you will use Twitter with educational purposes.

You must create a twitter account (please do NOT use your personal one) as you were one of the participants in the Great War (a militar commander? A politician? A soldier? A war journalist?... there are many possibilities, remember to review the Tag: World War in this blog). With this “historical account” you become follower of @auladeadriana

During the next two weeks you have to create a minimum of 18 tweets (10 of them base on real primary sources) in the name of your chosen character. Try not to be independent, but “talk” with the others (a soldier complaining to his superiors? Soldiers talking about their life in the trenches? Politicians exchanging messages and speeches?...)

The deadline is Monday 10 March. This work is individual and mandatory and will be part of the score at the end of the term. If you fail to finish it, do it out of date, or just copy from a webpage, the mark will be a 0 for this work.

Be creative and enjoy it! J
