Twitter War – Reformation Style

It’s time for an EPIC Twitter War!

No, we’re not talking about Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus.

Today in class, we will be pretending that Twitter existed back in the 1520’s and you will be working in groups to write a twitter battle between Martin Luther and Pope Leo X.  You will write a total of 6 tweets, complete with at least 2 hashtags (#) for each tweet.  This conversation between Luther and the Pope will be based in historical fact.  Use the readings from last Thursday and Friday (Luther’s Letter to the Archbishop and Pope Leo X’s Bull) to imagine the epic twitter battle these two might have had.

After groups created their epic battles, we shared them with the class.
