I Learned it through (the) Grape Vine

Joe developed this assignment as an entry in the 21st Century Literacies Lecture Series.  Joe’s assignment asks students to use the social media site Vine as a composing platform.  In asking his students to use Vine, Joe hopes to bring together everyday literacies – mediation and remediation – and school-based literacies – critical literacy and critical reflection.
