The Smithsonian, Memes, and Weekly Seminar

Categories: Adolescent Program
Every Friday morning, our Junior High students conduct a Seminar.  One student is responsible for choosing the topic (with guidance from Dr. Bilezikian), finding articles on the topic for classmates to study, and presenting the topic for discussion.  Dr. Bilezikian works with the student at the beginning of the week to find adequate – and vetted – research and articles so that the class can discuss the topic after a week of study.

This week:
Guide:  Student, it’s your turn to select our article for this week’s seminar.
Student:  Can I do something on memes?
Guide:  Depends, let’s see what you dig up.
Student:  (after a morning of searching magazines and internet)  How about this?
