A New/Not-so-new Approach to Essay Writing in WHAP?

This week was the launching of the #WHAPchat Twitter chat for AP World teachers.  As I was building the Storify, I realized that the conversation was asynchronous, so it wasn't always easy to follow the conversation.  I wanted the flow of the conversation to be more like a thread, so as some of the more astute of you may see, or if you look at the flow of the #whapchat hashtag in Twitter itself, the timing of some Tweets may be somewhat out of order. Hopefully, this doesn't take away from the experience.

 My preliminary thoughts are that this was an interesting experiment to see if having a in-depth Twitter chat is helpful to grow our approach to teaching some specific skills. I learned a few things about Essay Writing that I hope to try on my students.  What do you think?
