A Twitter worksheet for engaging language practice

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 10.13.49 AMClassroom activities using social media platforms engage today’s tech savvy students. I use this Twitter worksheet in class as a tool to help students practice the language we’ve been practicing in class. I’ve intentionally left this copy blank so that it can be used in an language classroom.

I just recently used this worksheet as a follow-up activity to the Pixar short La Luna and had students write tweets from the people in the boat. They were really creative and had a lot of fun with it!

A few instructions to accompany the worksheet:

  • Students draw profile pictures in the boxes of the people delivering each tweet
  • Students write short sentences (<140 characters) summarizing a reading or other topic studied in class.
  • Students include a hashtag related to the tweet.
