Unit 1- Personal shields of our quality world

Start brainstorming about yourself and your interests making a list of things your good at and things you like. These are all parts of your quality world. Remember when you are brainstorming no ideas are silly, just think of as many ideas as possible.

Group and class discussions on; what is a symbol? What are some symbols in our world?

Now think of as many symbols as possible for the words you came up with that are part of your quality world. Remember that these symbols are personal and should be your own creative representations.

The challenge: To choose 4-7 symbols from your list to creatively incorporate into a circular composition. Think of how the shapes fit together and how they overlap. Use the entire space.

For homework write what you’ve learned about symbols and well as an explanation to the symbols you have chosen to include. See handout.

After you have finished your shield please give yourself a mark out of Criteria A & B. Hand this in together with your finished piece for grading. See Rubric
