Graffiti Mural

GM 3

Here are a few photographs of our graffiti mural which assesses reading comprehension. The students answered questions related to the story of Daedalus and Icarus, as well as a poem by Anne Sexton. We began first by discussing whether Icarus was a hero for having gone near the sun or whether he was a fool for not listening to his father. The Anne Sexton poem sees Icarus as a hero who was brave enough to go near the sun while his father was the weak one who took the safe route. Then we also analyzed paintings and sculptures surrounding this story. In the end, the students examined all the different types of texts and answered questions on the graffiti mural using post-its. They had to use up all the space on the post-it and keep their responses anonymous. I read all the post-its in the end and shared their responses.

Aquí están algunas fotografías de nuestro mural de graffiti que evalúa la comprensión de lectura. Los estudiantes responden a las preguntas relacionadas con la historia de Dédalo e Ícaro, así como un poema de Anne Sexton. Comenzamos primero por discutir si Ícaro era un héroe por haber ido cerca del sol o si era un tonto por no escuchar a su padre. El poema Anne Sexton ve Ícaro como un héroe que fue lo suficientemente valiente para ir cerca del sol, mientras que su padre era el débil quien tomó la ruta segura. Entonces también se analizaron pinturas y esculturas que rodean esta historia. Al final, los estudiantes examinan todos los diferentes tipos de textos y responden a las preguntas sobre el mural de graffiti usando post-its. Tuvieron que utilizar todo el espacio en el post-it y mantener sus respuestas anónimas. Leí todos los post-its en el final y compartí sus respuestas.
