As a Tweeter for this part of class, it was my job to put together a synthesized study guide of all the tweets from our discussions.
In making this, I really wanted to incorporate discussions about both the literature we read, but also the history we discussed. I made a timeline of both, literature below history, and aligned them so the reader would be able to focus on either history or literature, but still be able to view both and how they fill in with each other. For me, knowing the history of the time while I’m reading a text always helps me understand the piece better.
The timeline begins with my first tweet from class, featuring a very excited Jonah Hill, and moves into the branches. All the big events or when something was published are prefaced with the date, all of which are listed chronologically. From there, I attached more notes of the things we talked about the most in class discussions. Above the literature timeline is the history timeline, where I put in the dates and events that were going on in England that we talked about in class, from Charles II taking the throne in 1660 to the French Revolution erupting in 1789. I color coded things, history in red and literature in blue, for an easier read. I also connected the posts together, main event/publishing dates connected to each other, and each discussion point connected to the event/work they were about.
This Padlet (linked here) was a labor of love, and I hope you guys like it!
