This is a project that I use during the first weeks of class. I would start my lesson with the Wierd Al music video "Word Crimes" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Gv0H-vPoDc. Then engage my students in a disucssion of different modes of writing and speaking (audience). After that I pass out the project. I always make sure to bring in a few pop-up books for the students to look at so that they have an idea of the "special effects" that are in pop-up books.
