Collaborative Art

While in Kentucky, I gave each student a country in Africa to research and instructed them to artistically represent what they learned onto the country I gave them. Each country was a puzzle piece that fit the continent and, together, we created a piece of art that represented all our learning.

Tonight, in Connecticut, I am doing a similar project but assigning students to visually represent LITERACY in the sections I give them. The goal, of course, is to collectively unite our thinking about literacy into a piece of art that represents the multiplicity of our ideas.

I have not done this project in four years and I am hopeful it will turn out looking unique. The goal is to establish thought-provoking representations of what my graduate students know. I will let you know how it goes.
