Note: When creating your meme online, be aware that other memes that exist may be inappropriate. Proceed with caution.
Do you know what a meme is? You probably do even if you don't know you do! It's just something (usually funny) that gets passed around on the internet. Also, they are all over my classroom.
Here's an interesting article defending memes as an artform, if you are interested!
Last year, the What You Think I Do meme was really popular.
Here's an example of a What You Think I Do meme. (In this case, it's about the profession of teaching.) (Please note that not every example you could find on the internet would be classroom-appropriate.)
Now it's your turn to take the character of Gatsby (for this assignment, you don't have a choice of characters) and create a meme (in this case, one image) that shows how other characters perceive him.
Your meme will say Gatsby at the top, and then your captions might be something like "How Nick sees him" or "How Tom sees him." One of your captions might also be "How he sees himself." Remember that your meme could be both funny and accurate (as far as other characters' feelings.)
To create your meme, go to a meme generator website like Meme Generator and add your images and captions. Upon completing it, make sure you either download it . Note: I'm not sure if you can save this as a work in progress, so you may want to make sure you have selected all of your images before you begin creating your meme.
In the comment section, talk about your intention with your meme. Bring your meme to class, either on your phone and saved or printed out. If you have trouble creating your meme online, draw out your meme or create a similar looking meme on a Microsoft Word document with pictures from the Internet or magazines.
