My Take

In the background, I put a Soundcloud tune, and when the stage was set, I gave students the instructions for their project and the downloadable rubric. "Students" were to make a remix focused on one of the immigrants pictured in my mix. Here's my example: http://popcorn.webmadecontent.org/14w4
