Media Literacy or Literature?
Posted 06/13/2017 08:47AM

The students of Grade 7 Ain Aar worked on a project that asked them to select the appropriate social media application to re-tell the famous literary work “Where the Red Fern Grows”. The task transported this 1961 novel to our current times as students used various social media tools such as hashtags, comments, re-sharing to highlight major themes, literary elements and characters’ feelings from the story. The students were asked to create a poster in which the major character and narrator of the novel shared their life through entries on social media. The students’ final product also included an oral presentation in which they explained their choice of social media in an attempt to answer how social media applications can be used to analyze literary works.
