        The Gettysburg Tweet

        This assignment uses the Gettysburg Address as an example of saying something profound with a limited amount of words. This is a skill that requires deep thinking and a careful crafting of words - something that is useful in all sorts of situations. After viewing several Gettysburg Address videos, students are given 3 activities that challenge their use of language: Tweeting a historic event, summarizing themselves with just 6 words, and composing a fortune cookie of advice.
