Social Issue


Write about your poster. Answer a number of these questions in your writing. What are some other questions that come to mind? Why do you feel the way you do? What are your arguments for or against?  What – or who – has influenced your decisions.  What is the "flip side" of your issue? What might the other side have to say? Can you see their point of view?  What is your reasoning for choosing your stand?  Is your artwork intended to offend? Who would be offended? Does the artist have a right to offend? Critique your project. Does it get your point across? How? Is there a focal point (center of interest)? Does it show effective use of Principles of Design? How?

Reflection-
Students will write a minimum of three paragraphs. these paragraphs will explain thier successes, challenges, and the tools that they used. These paragraphs should also explain how their quotes went from text to visual text and the difficulties of that.


The students will make comments on other students’ work. These comments should be meaningful. By reflecting on the quality of the work, the successes and challenges in their peer’s paragraph, and their own thoughts on the difficulties of typography, the commenter should be able to reflect accordingly.
