Limited Capacity seats available

Target Audience:
Middle and high school educators

Learning Objectives, Rationale, & Description:
Memes are a common form of expression for teenage students. Learn how to combine student interest in memes using Google Docs and Drawings in order to address literacy standards in a fun and engaging manner. Materials will be provided to ensure students do not encounter inappropriate content when creating memes. 

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Using the Common Core State Standard Progression Tool, participants will explore literacy standards and how they progress K-12. Lesson materials will be provided that allow students to safely use memes without fear of encountering inappropriate material. Participants will then learn how to create memes using Google Docs and Drawings that address the standards that they explored with the progression tool.  Sample lesson templates from multiple grade levels and subject areas will be shared that address the literacy standards. Materials will incorporate literature commonly used in schools, relevant science articles and primary source social studies documents.
Participants will practice what they learned by creating their own memes in a sample lesson template and have the opportunity to share them with others. As time permits, they can then modify the lesson materials to meet the personal needs of their students.
