Resources – Pilot Response

Some resources we post here are more for educators’ edification. Sometimes these are pop- or Internet-culture things we expect students may know about, but educators might not; sometimes these are to help guide you on more sensitive subjects which you might be concerned about presenting in the classroom. Obviously, these are resources you might share with your students, too, if you wish!

You may by now be familiar with “LOLcats,” pictures of cats with captions that circulate online to evoke the LOLs. (That’s Laughing Out loud, not Lots Of Live, btw.) In this episode, we referred to Anil Dash’s article about how their atrocious grammar and spelling actually follows its own grammatical rules.

Know all of this already? Well, fine. Perhaps you would like to graduate from LOLcats to LOLauthors, LOLpresidents, or LOLtheorists? We find they make for excellent PowerPoint slides ^_^

And finally, Erna would like you to learn more about fan fiction.
