The meme creation project was linked to student research projects for a journalism class. Media Savvy Citizens worked with a teacher to co-design & deliver a project that fit their schedule & enhanced student learning. Students chose a research topic and created memes to go with their written papers. The memes were a nice way to break up the work and helped students understand and synthesize their research while learning to evaluate memes.
