All the Tweets!

There's been a little confusion...

About when and what to tweet. So here's a quick run-down plus links to full details.

Primary Source Tweets (PST)

These are tweets about the readings. They are called Primary Source Tweets because your readings are...primary sources. (This is what we call a document written in the time and place we're studying.

Primary Source Tweets (PST) are due at the very start of class (8:30 am or 12:00 pm). They count for credit (up to 4 points). They are graded for completion. You are expected to do your own quality control.

Typically, you'll only complete PST once per week. Students in Group A and students in Group B alternate classes.

The full instructions and suggestions for these tweets are available in Assessments: Primary Source Tweets.

Entry Tweets

These are tweets completed in response to the question listed for the Entry Tweet on any given class page. 

Entry Tweets should be completed when you arrive in class (ideally within the first 20 minutes of class).

Entry Tweets count toward participation credit. You should plan to complete most tweets, but it's okay if you cannot complete all of them.

Exit Tweets

These are tweets completed in response to the question listed for the Exit Tweet on any given class page. The question is almost always the same: What did you think was significant in today's class - and why?

Exit Tweets should be completed before you leave class (or within 30 minutes of the end of class).

Exit Tweets count toward participation credit. You should plan to complete most tweets, but it's okay if you cannot complete all of them.
