Eohs Homework Meme

Even if we're no longer in school, we all still have plenty of feelings about homework, the bane of our existence for so long. Who could forget the moment when we had to copy a friend's homework in a panic, doing our best to make it look at least a little different? And now there's a meme based on this very concept, which started with this tweet about 90's sitcom Living Single:

"can I copy your homework?"

"yeah just change it up a bit so it doesn't look obvious you copied"

"ok" pic.twitter.com/jU6P74w3z9

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.

Here's an interesting article defending memes as an artform, if you are interested!

Here's an example (click to view larger) 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.  The grid you worked on in class will help you complete this task.
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 this website and add your images and captions.  Upon completing it, make sure you either download it (so that you can send it to me in an e-mail, as an image file) or tweet it @EHSMrsJ.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.
  • Creativity                                                            20 pts.
  • Accuracy                                                              20 pts.
  •  Completion and attention to detail               20 pts.
  • Explanation paper (given in class)               20 pts./80

Note:  If you don’t like to use the Internet, no big deal.  Enough information will be presented in class for you to complete the assignment successfully either way.  As always, good class attendance and productive use of provided class time will best help you complete the assignment and/or to earn your best grade.

Mrs. J. doesn’t endorse/condone students using meme generators (or anything on the Internet) inappropriately on school time or on school computers.
