Putting the POP in Culture!
METC 2014
What is pop culture?
"[T]he entirety of ideas, perspectives, attitudes, memes, images and other phenomena that are preferred by an informal consensus within the mainstream of a given culture . . ." ~Wikipedia
by Megan Chambers & Amy Taylor
Lee's Summit West High School
Why should we care?
"...the stunning fact is that we do not fully know what literacy is. The assumption that it is simply a matter of the skills of reading and writing does not even begin to approach the fundamental problem: what are reading and writing for?"
"Transliteracy: Crossing divides by Sue Thomas, Chris Joseh, et al. First Monday, volume 12, number 12, 3 December 2007
"People produce, read, and interpret texts in communities, not in isolation. Communities reach consensus about interpretation...literacy cannot be described, therefore, in broad terms as a set of universal skills and abstractable processes. Rather, literacy is in constant flux and embedded in cultural situations, each situation nuanced and different from others."
"Critical information literacy: implications for instructional practice by James Elmborg. The Journal of Academic Librarianship, vol. 32 number 2, pages 192-199.
Pop Media
Pop Music
Pop Books
The community that surrounds a tv show/movie/book etc. Fanfiction writers, artists, poets, and cosplayers are all members of that fandom. Fandoms often consist of message boards, livejournal communities, and people. ~Urban Dictionary

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to
the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety
to life and to everything. ~Plato
"Adult librarians are like lazy bakers: their patrons want a jelly doughnut, so they give them a jelly doughnut. Childrens [YA] librarians are ambitious bakers: 'You like the jelly doughnut? I'll get you a jelly doughnut. But you should try my cruller, too. My cruller is gonna blow your mind, kid'". ~John Green, author
Pop Learning
The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them
