Just to recap my re-purposing assignment is writing a feature article for a magazine about Serena Williams as both an athlete and role model. For the remediation project I have a few ideas that I am considering.
First, since my re-purpose on Serena Williams is talking a lot about her body image I think it would be really interesting to use pictures of newspaper headlines and photos that have been used in articles about her. Reporters seem to have an obsession with her “masculine” body so I think there would be a lot of material to work with. A big part of my paper is how the media portrays her so this would be a direct representation of that.
A second way to re-mediate this work would be to have a type of podcast where there are soundbites about her. These soundbites would come from interviews and sports reports about her. It would convey the same message as my article does but with all primary sources.
A third and final way to re-mediate this article could be a slideshow type thing that in a way combines the previous two options. I could make an iMovie that shows pictures while playing relevant soundbites.
