Grade Level

11th Grade

Classroom

Concept

Deducing the meaning of pictures and symbols

Goals

Students who take this class will be treated to an elaborate lesson supporting the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”. In this age of quickly shifting methods of communication, being able to actively employ multiple methods of interpretation is key to cultural understanding.

Students will analyze images and symbols and interpret their meaning on a cultural and historical level (by “telling the story” of the picture).
