A variation on my typical articles of the week. Students will need internet access to complete the article. The article contains gifs that contribute to the meaning of the piece.
The article describes how a candidate for a Senate seat in California "dabbed" at the end of her debate. It reviews the history of dabbing and argues that dabbing is no longer cool; rather, it is dead.
Includes questions that focus on:
Supporting claims with evidence
Analyzing how analogies create/develop meaning in a text
You could easily add a question that focuses on the purpose of the video images and how they, too, help develop meaning.
