Twitter Activities on Current Issues

Every Friday on its Do Now website, KQED Education posts a weekly activity for students to engage in and respond to current issues using social media tools, such as Twitter. The activity includes a brief introduction to the topic and a media resource that can be played directly on the site. At the top of the activity, there is a question for student response after students go through the introduction and media resource to deepen their understanding of the topic. Students can respond to the Do Now activity in the comments section on the website, or they can tweet their responses. (Each student must create a Twitter account.)
