Small Group Activity: Using an images from icanhas.cheezburger.com’s meme builder, create two caption for a photo, one using conventional SWE, and another using nonstandard forms. These memes are generally humorous, but you can affect other tones if you feel it is appropriate. For your SWE caption, you can use a template from the They Say/I Say text if you feel it fits. We will share the images briefly with the group.
