This is the thirteenth, and final, lesson in the Reading Ads with a Social Justice Lens series. This lesson gives students a chance to reflect on what they have learned. By working collaboratively to create their own advertisements, children will not only synthesize their understanding of the topics, but also show that they are thinkers as well as activists.
This is the second part of a two-part lesson. Now that students have begun work on their activist murals, they must spend time thinking about managing their time and materials. It will also be important for them to remind themselves and each other of their messages and ultimate goals.
This is lesson seven of the series Art and Activism, which begins a long-term collaborative project that focuses on thinking about art as a tool for activism. Students work collaboratively to identify and select a message or theme for a community activism mural.
This lesson series capitalizes on children's natural relationship to art by prompting them examine the ways art relates to community leadership and activism. The lessons can be used individually or as a full series and are not dependent on sequence.
Talking about activism, activists and leaders, helps children understand how change can happen in a community. This lesson will give students a chance to think about what these concepts mean and to consider the relationship between community activism and the visual arts.
