  1. Good Work!
    I love the narrative and the examples that you have shared!
    A very effective selection of memes and GIF/memes are also present!
    Lets add a few hyperlinks for context to the statements that are being made – see how you can build upon that – and make more memes! Im hoping that everyone will make at least 3-5 to really have the contrasting experience of making memes! This can be done over time through out the semester too!
    Thank You!
