Hashtags

Clip to ScrapBook #8

We looked at tweets that have short hashtags that are like summaries. Like a tweet linking to an article about a dog who saves their family might have a #herodog.

Then they read each paragraph of a nonfiction article and write a hashtag for it.

Finally, they take their hashtags and make a summary.

It's not perfect, but it's more engaging than some of the stuff they did in second and third grade. And it gets them to determine importance.

Here is an example using fiction text; hope it helps!
