Using Memes to Connect with Students and Curriculum


Leverage the popularity of memes by using them to inspire more imaginative student writing. The concise and generally witty nature of memes will require your students to think carefully about their subject and the visual nature of memes makes for colorful and captivating classroom displays. Using free and available apps, repurpose old shots or take new ones, and let students create the stories that go with them. Whether you are introducing a new topic or trying to add some life to an old one, a meme is a very quick and simple way to inject some fun into a discussion. Use Memes as creative writing activities, to set class rules, expectations, ice-breakers and/or procedures.

The workshop will be presented by Michelle Wendt, Instructional Technologist at the SRI&ETTC.
