Clemson Prof Teaching on Twitter During Storm

by Associated Press

CLEMSON, S.C.—With classes canceled for a second day because of winter weather, one Clemson University professor is taking her teaching to Twitter.

Assistant Professor Sarah Juliet Lauro says she’s holding a virtual discussion with her students about Graham Greene’s novel “The Comedians.”

This week, Lauro says her class would have been talking about the book in class. Instead, she says her students will be tweeting their observations about the reading.

For a film history class, Lauro says she assigned students to re-watch a scene from “Citizen Kane.” For both classes, Lauro created unique hashtags so the classes can track the discussions.

Lauro says the winter storm is giving her opportunities to get creative in her teaching. She says many of her students needed to sign up for Twitter to participate.
