This is a bonus activity for English II, not a required activity. Through it, you will use your knowledge of visual rhetoric, mood, tone, and diction. All great memes will be displayed. Everyone can try! If you do not already know what a meme is, look it up or see me during lunch. The rules:
Your meme must be original and created solely by you, including the picture. Do not simply perform an internet search and “borrow” something someone else has created. Do not use a meme generator. Trust me; I have minions who figure this stuff out for me.
All memes must be appropriate for the classroom. If you have to ask, then it probably isn’t.
Your meme must have something to do with English class: writing, reading, vocabulary, presenting, collaborating. It can focus on something we have read. It can be a more generic expression of language usage that is relevant to class. However, it cannot be a personal attack against any teachers or students (even in jest) or impertinent.
On the back of your printed meme (yes, YOU must print it), include a brief description of the technique you used as well as your intended tone and mood. Memes without this information will only earn half the potential bonus points.
Do you research!
