Walls as Learning Space

IMG_2523.JPG

Another unit, another wall.

This wall was assembled by 12th grade students to capture characters, symbols, and mock-artifacts related to Toni Morrison’s A Mercy.  The more I use this approach, the more value I see in it.  Students put their ideas up on the wall, and they become a record of what we’ve done, what we’ve discovered.  The wall gives students a permanent reference to significant elements of the novel and also serves as a discussion point.  Students notice things that are missing or that are redundant, and then the class contributes to the process of bringing it together and making it more complete.
