Unit

Description:

Overview: This module emphasizes the following Common Core Standard for reading literature (grades 9-10):

RL.9-10.9. "Analyze how an author draws on and transforms source material in a specific work (e.g., how Shakespeare treats a theme or topic from Ovid or the Bible or how a later author draws on a play by Shakespeare)."

From the perspective of this module, the above standard implicitly supports developing understanding of two core new media literacy practices: appropriation and remixing.

This module makes an argument that a full understanding of appropriation and remixing extends beyond analyzing how an author draws on and transforms source material to include engaging in the practice of drawing on (appropriating) and transforming (remixing) source material. The activities included in this unit offer opportunities for students to both practice appropriation and remixing and analyze others’ use of appropriation and remixing.
