“The Vegetable Garden: A PBL in Environmental Studies”

The principal has expressed interest in introducing a vegetable garden for the school community. She believes that introducing a garden that can be maintained by students will have multiple benefits. Rather than employing garden experts to design and set up the garden, she prefers to involve the students of St. Mark’s. She is aware however, that the students may have many different ideas on the details of the garden. She is concerned that the vegetable garden will have to be well thought out if funds are to be secured for its implementation. She has asked the teachers to challenge the students to collaborate on a project in order to design a solution.

“My Selfie…Self Portraits: Who am I?”

Artists have used self-portraits to explore a basic question: Who am I? While a mirror or a photograph can tell a person what he or she looks like, that physical image does not reflect the whole self. Self-portraiture insists the artist embark on a journey of self-exploration in order to make decisions about how to represent him/herself authentically. For each self-portrait, the artist must ask: What expression, posture, clothing, background, colors, texture, and style best express the real me? In this unit, you will explore your identity and create a self portrait that reveals something to others about yourself through the use of text.
