This lesson will challenge your students to view their world through a different lens. Students hear straightforward news stories every day. This project asks the students to think about these news stories and then design a parallel illustration that recreates the information using symbolism, metaphor and allusion. Don’t forget to ask for artist statements to help students solidify their thoughts.
