My Pandemic Collage: A Community Building Activity- Digital and Paper/Pencil
Create a stronger learning community in your secondary classroom by helping your students create visual arguments about the elephant in the room- the global pandemic and its effects on us all.
This two-day lesson uses images to review rhetorical and literary devices and thesis statements with students. This 56-page resource is available in editable and fillable Word documents for F2F classrooms and in Google Slides for virtual and hybrid classroom. Your students will build a solid learning community as they discuss how the pandemic has changed their lives.
Introduce images to students and help them find embedded rhetorical devices, like repetition and contrast. Then divide into pairs and small groups to allow your students to build connections as they practice creating thesis statements for the images. Soon they will create their own collages with images and devices that support their own pandemic arguments.
You will build community, review devices and thesis statements, while also assessing your students' prior knowledge.
This product is perfect for secondary composition and speech classes.
