Remixing Political Texts to Promote New Media Literacies

Date: September 16, 2017

Instructor: Ashley Goodrich, Teacher Consultant

Schedule: The workshops will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.

Location: UGA Gwinnett Campus, 2530 Sever Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30043

Description: How do we engage students in the difficult work of interacting with political texts in our social studies and ELA classes? “Remix”, taking something old to create something new, has been an approach used by political reformers and activists to promote their ideas for hundreds of years.

In this workshop, we will:

* Explore the concept of remix and apply it to the teaching of political texts (speeches, proclamations, treatises, manifestos, posters, photographs, paintings, etc);

* Analyze the craft of creating political texts to teach the Social Studies and ELA Georgia Standards of Excellence, and

* Learn to plan and employ remix as a pedagogical approach to challenge our students in addressing contemporary political issues that matter to them.
