HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE

As popular culture often reflects aspects of daily life, it provides a way to connect with students regardless of discipline. This guide is designed to provide professors with ideas as to how popular culture might be incorporated into their lesson plans. It is divided into five main tabs:

MEMES: Explains what a meme is and how it is replicated and transmitted. There is also a listing of recommended articles, resources and search terminology.

GAMES & GAMING: Provides an overview of the state of games and gaming with an emphasis on classroom incorporation. There is also a listing of recommended readings as well as web links and search terminology.

FAN FICTION: Because fanfiction is such a rapidly evolving creative pursuit, this tab looks at the terminology involved in reading and writing fanfiction and also provides links to the most popular fanfiction archives. Also embedded is a side presentation as to why professors should consider incorporating fanfiction into their assignments.

TV/FILM/RADIO: This tab focuses on where professors and students can locate source materials as well as free editing software for media manipulation. Also contained as a means of showcasing how popular culture can be used in an education environment is a short listing of some schools offering popular culture specific courses and their related course readings.

CLASSOOM IDEAS: This tab will provide professors with discipline specific ideas as to how to bring pop culture into the classroom. This section covers cultural tools as well as media references.
