  • 2. SUMMARY  Unit • Prior Learning • New Learning • Assessment  Lesson • Remix (multimodal) • Remix (visual)  Segment  Discussion
  • 3. PRIOR LEARNING  Students have read most of the novel „Beast‟ by Donna Jo Napoli  Students have already been using some form of blogging and have active accounts  Students have discussed the themes and the subject matter of the novel, i.e. they know the metalanguage
  • 4. NEW LEARNING  Students will learn about the genres of remixing  Students will explore the multimodal remix text of Fatima al Qadiri and Tabor Rohak  Students will open a imagechef account  Students will upload images to imagechef and manipulate them to create “stickers”  Students will create a 1-2 page remix in class
  • 5. ASSESSMENT  At home, students may edit their remix to make it up 10 pages if they wish  In the last lesson of the unit students will add the remix to a blog about the character Orasmyn which will include at minimum one separate 60 word summary (no more no less)
  • 6. REMIX Remixing is the practice of appropriating images and/or sound from a rich variety of sources to create representation of a new concept. It is a form of digital collage and is often multimodal.
  • 7. VATICAN VIBES The example we will first explore is „Vatican Vibes‟
  • 8. OUR FIRST REMIX The type of text we will produce will be something more like this:
  • 9. BECOME AN IMAGECHEF Go to: Create and account using your secure school email
  • 10. CREATE A REMIX  Open link to earlier example:  Find and click on the tab „Make Your Own‟  Decide on a focus: a) Orasmyn‟s masculinity b) Orasmyn‟s culture  Upload relevant images to your chosen theme and create “stickers”  Import images and stickers into your remix and play around with it
  • 11. INCLUSION SOME: Ss will extend their blog MOST: Ss will be on topic Ss will add more slides (10 max) ALL: Ss will make a Remix (1-2 slides)
  • 12. DISCUSSION  Is there anything you think I could improve in my delivery of this segment/unit?  How might you use „remix‟ to engage students and get them responding to/producing texts?
