Guiteras Elementary School Library: 2016 Media Literacy Week - Memes

2016 Media Literacy Week

2016 Media Literacy Week - #GuiterasMemeMakers

Last year, Guiteras students in Grades 2-5 discussed and analyzed YouTube videos during Media Literacy Week. This year, the students will discuss and analyze cat memes using URI's "Key Questions of Media Literacy."

Each class will make cat memes and vote for one favorite meme to share within and outside the Guiteras learning community. Each class will also track the number of times and the location of the "clicks" to understand how memes spread online.  

Join the "Meow-ment!"  

Share the memes with this link (http://guides.rilinkschools.org/guiteras/2016MediaLiteracyWeek or the bit.ly version is http://bit.ly/2eXQFrF) with #GuiterasMemeMakers.
