My 9th graders are difficult to teach, they are not motivated but whenever I want them to play a game, they become very eager. They are very competitive and even the weakest of them, try to do their bests to win a point for their teams so we play lots of games.Sometimes I adapt drill-like activities to games or interesting activities.
We were revising If Clauses and I decided to do it as tweets. I explained them how we write chain stories. Then put them in groups, gave them poster size paper and three sentences that they could start their story. They really enjoyed working in the groups and the 8th lesson of a very long day needed happily.

    Hello, my name is Courtney Fields. I am a student of EDM310 at The University Of South Alabama. I love this Twitter activity. It is a fun and creative way to engage the students. I think it is important to incorporate some fun into learning, especially, when it comes to ninth graders. Thank you for sharing!
