More Fascinating Objects…
During these pre-visits, I’ve been so struck by how students are able to generate funny, redemptive, sad, wise, and downright profound responses to visual objects.
Here’s aТ couple of lovely momentsТ from today’s class at Franklin Heights (thanks for catching these, Dionne):
“I am more than who you think I am – I have a story of my own.” – Reinhard,Т Grade 9.
“I have no simplicity.” -Marena, Grade 9.
These lines undo me.
In the spirit of this work, here’s another fantastic resource if you are interested in continuing creative writing exercises surroundingТ intriguing/mysterious artifacts (especially as it relates to historical & cultural contexts).
