Dr. Knobel 
Thanks for giving me a step by step way to remix on newlits.  However, I have no idea what I am supposed to be remixing?  I am so sorry if this is a cray question!  I must admit I am completely lost!  Is it okay if we talk about this in class on the 25th or is that too late?  I am trying so hard not to get frustrated, but I do feel the tears coming!
 Thanks for your help.

C'mon wveryone--help Phylissa out. I've had a chat to her and the mechanics of posting to the wiki are sorted out. But chat about some of your *own* plans--remember this is all about sharing ideas rather than "owning" them (of course, talking about them here with a time and date stamp and all attached to your comment means that no-one can go ahead and do exactly the same thing that you plan to do. BUT your idea might spark ideas in others.).

Phylissa, think about fanfiction and how that's a remix of an original text as a place to start getting your head around what you're being asked to do.

Don't forget to muck around with "Comic Life" if you have access to a Mac. You could use Comic Life (free for Macs) to comment on quotes from an article, convert chunks of an article to comic format. If you're a PC user, you can borrow my copy of Comic Book Creator, or borrow the program from the ADP Center.
