Creating Journalists at Emmanuel College

A guide for ENGL 2501 and ENGL 3801

Students, welcome to your final: The Boston Marathon

startMy Emmanuel College students will be out along the Boston Marathon route on Monday, soaking in the scene, Tweeting up a storm and collecting quotes and photos for their final project.

The hashtag to follow is #ECBM. If the digital gods play nice, you will see the Rebel Mouse page below fill up with their Tweets as the Marathon progresses.

Students: Charge your batteries now! Remember to take more notes or photos than you think you’ll use, talk to everyone you meet, carry only what can fit in your pockets (and that should include multiple pens and backup batteries), wear lots of sunscreen and comfortable shoes, Tweet up a storm and have fun! We’ll talk about the stories you find on Wednesday.
