Here’s my “storified” journey through the French Revolution through tweets!
Robespierre was an interesting character to play. I agreed with his notions of equality and fighting for the people when he first got involved, but patience slipped away from him and power corrupted “the Incorruptible.” Though Robespierre did horrible things, he did move the French Revolution forward and make a difference, negative or positive.
This unit was really fun, and I really enjoyed being able to express my ideas and oppositions through Twitter! It felt like we were all really getting involved, and there was a lot of freedom. All in all, a great way to learn about the French Revolution!
