    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: This assignment asks students to create a Web site featuring a critical analysis of memes. As such, the project encourages students to explore what a word can do that an image cannot and vice versa. The piece was published in The Journal for Undergraduate Multimedia Projects (TheJUMP+) in an issue devoted to memes and remix. The assignment is accompanied by an overview essay, examples of student work, and reflective essays by the journal’s editorial collective. TheJUMP+ offers a place for students to showcase their efforts and provides teachers with a source of potential models for projects they want to assign. As such, it becomes a potential gold mine of fodder for project ideas and the scaffolding that can foster their production. The journal also helps students see themselves as active contributors to the ongoing conversation around multimodality, and fostering this sort of agency in students is perhaps the most worthy goal for multimodal curricula.
