Saratoga "Twitter" Post

George Washington wasn't at the battle of Saratoga but the American victory there was still a huge boost for the Continental Army he led. My students are writing a Twitter post (no more than 140 characters!) as if they are Washington and are announcing the victory. This is a great way for students to summarize information and they are having fun doing it.
I will be posting some of their "Tweets" on my new Twitter account, @Mrsslaviero.

The Vice Presidential Candidates, Paul Ryan and Joe Biden, will debate next week.

We will discuss the debate tomorrow in class.
