Blog Post 13

Create an assignment for a Blog Post I should have created in your area of specialty (math,
history, elementary ed, special ed, whatever). Write the instructions that I should have put here.

Currently I am studying to became a high school/ middle school social science teacher. I plan to incorporate a lot of Project Based Learning activities with my students. After observing a 10th grade social studies class at Blount High School I noticed the majority of the students where not engaged. I plan on incorporate a lot of modern-day social media themes into my lessons. For example, twitter, Facebook, instragram,etc. Students will NOT be able go the these social networks but, I will incorporate there themes into my lessons. For example, I have located an activity where the students will the responsibility of picking a person who has made a sufficient impact on U.S. history. The students will make a poster displaying the individual they chose. The student will then list some important facts about the person. The students can use some of the appropriate social network lingo such as:TBT( throwback Thursday), HCM( History Crush Monday), LOL( Laugh Out Loud) etc!
Here is an example of the activity InstraHistory


  1. Hey Brittney, I think your blog post is a good idea for a final blog post. I also think this would be a good way to engage the kids in your classroom. Keep up the good work!

  2. You have a great idea for an activity that can for sure be used in the classroom. The only suggestion I would make is to incorporate the use of more technology in the project. What about an online poster?
