I have to tell you that we have had more Tweets than ever from our kids this year. We had students from five teachers and trended on Twitter (#usgovclasssou) the last 40 minutes of the State of the Union. You can do it as well and WOW the kids really enjoy seeing their hashtag featured on Twitter which really spurs them on. Here is the post discussing how to use a hashtag for your students.
You can also go to our hashtag of #usgovclasssou and see how well behaved our students were.
