For the love of Andromeda, meme me up Scotty!
STUDENT OBJECTIVES: The Student(s) will…
• Identify specific areas within the classroom or around the school to promote school
• Expand their understanding and use of technology in the classroom
• Utilize higher order thinking skills (H.O.T. skills) to develop image-use and sayings that
are school related, student friendly, rules compliant, and promote the school/school
programs…while having fun.
TOPICS for your MEMES:
• Class rules/School rules
• New student orientation
• Promoting school clubs/organizations
• Promoting curriculum/literature
• Teacher--student communication
What are some ways to utilize memes
with your students?
This isn’t a game of stump-the-chump. You can have fun with this!
Think about some of the discussions in the classroom between the
teachers and students…some of the significant curriculum
topics/articles/documents/literature that have been dissected in class...
when you work on this, you are tying your creativity, your intellect, your
tech savvy mind(s)…
and you are limited only by your own imagination, and this DISCLAIMER!
-will NOT use any profane language
-will NOT use any inappropriate images for your meme
-WILL cite your work
-All your work WILL be in accordance with your student handbook guidelines
-WILL comply with the rubric/measuring tool presented by teacher

I know this goes against my preferred rule of
‘SCHOOL IS NO PLACE TO HAVE FUN’ but there are
exceptions to every rule.
You can have students practicing both creative and
critical thinking while generating memes related to
a UNIT/CLASS you are teaching, a school PROGRAM
you are a part of, support CLASSROOM/SCHOOL
RULES, and even interactions between STUDENTS &
TEACHERS. Keep in mind the option of NEW
STUDENT ORIENTATION ideas, etc.

Always try to present the students
with a RUBRIC to guide their
creativity and output.
