Due: Tweets are expected from Group A this time around. Deadline is the start of class.

Grading: Tweets graded for completion, with the expectation that you will do your own quality control. 

Optional Reading

  • TEAIP: Chapter 4, "Ancient Iran", 83-88.

Watch for Class

No mistake here - I'm intentionally assigning the video a second time. It's worth re-viewing.

Materials for Class

There are designated times for tweeting throughout class (entry and exit tweets), BUT you're always welcome to tweet more frequently. I'll keep an eye on the class hashtag via my phone or Tweetdeck, so feel free to add questions, comments, links, images, interesting stuff throughout class.

Entry Tweet (to be completed on arrival in class)

  • On Twitter or via Tweetdeck:
    • If your best friend wrote a bio or description of you, what would it sound like? Write a 280 character bio (including #hwc111 #c07) of yourself as if the author was your biggest fan. You're welcome to make things up; you can be as personal or impersonal as you like.

Exit Tweet (to be completed at the end of class)

  • On Twitter or via Tweetdeck, using #hwc111 #c07, tell me who or what you thought was significant in today's class AND why you thought the person, thing, or idea was significant.
