Thereses digitale klasserom

-Nettsteder brukt i mitt digitale klasserom-

And then the murders began

leave a comment »

Det begynte med en tweet fra Marc Laidlaw 3. mars:

murders

Jeg så dette først noen dager senere, i et meme på tumblr og innen da hadde forfatteren Neil Gaiman re-tweetet den opprinnelige tweeten og lagt til et eksempel fra The Christmas Carol – noe som gjorde at Laidlaws tweet nådde ut til et betraktelig større publikum. Etter dette har folk fortsatt å liste opp førstesetninger fra diverse bøker som beviser denne påstanden, med relativt mange fornøyelige resultater (se under). På twitter kan du finne enda flere under hashtaggen . Ladilaw selv har også kommentert fenomenet på bloggen sin.

Hvordan bruke dette i klasserommet? La elevene gjøre eksperimentet med sine favorittbøker og se hva resultatet blir. La elevene skrive en tekst/novelle der andre setningen må være «And then the murders began» – eventuelt bare skrive en førstesetning som blir enda bedre av den obligatoriske andresetningen. Vis elevene tweeten og «konsekvensene», og diskuter hvordan sosiale medier evner å spre et «budskap» til mange mennesker på kort tid. Eller bare les eksemplene nedenfor sammen med elevene, og fnis litt sammen.
