What is a meme? According to the Cambridge Dictionary, it is "an idea, image, video, etc. that is spread very quickly on the internet". Helpfully, one of our students also shared his knowledge of the background of the word, telling me that it has its origin in Latin, and means 'memorable'.
As part of a creative lesson, the students of an English Writing class first had a discussion about what memes are, what are the most popular or trending ones lately, as well as some of their favourite classic image and video memes. Then, the students were able to get creative. They used a meme generator / image processing software at https://www.kapwing.com/meme-maker
to create a variety of their own imaginative and humorous memes. Below you can find a few examples.
