Starting Project 3: 

Today we are starting Project 3, Remix a Story. This project asks us to take a well known story and put a different spin on it.


The famous beginning of the novel

For my project, I am choosing to work with the classic Jane Austen novel, Pride and Prejudice, which is a story of romance, manners, morality, and marriage set in England in the early 19th century. The story follows Elizabeth Bennett, one of five unwed sisters, as she navigates the social scene and eventually ends up engaged to Mr. Darcy.

There are many forms of Pride and Prejudice. The three versions I have found are the original text, the 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie, and Bridget Jone’s Diary (a modern adaption).

For my project, I’ll be adapting the novel again, and turning it into a tabloid / gossip column like the NY Post’s Page 6.  The project will transform all of the stories from the novel into modern gossip articles.

I’m looking forward to getting started!
