Students will be offered a list of quotes, poetry and excerpts related to cultural identity, social justice, community, and life in America. From this collection they can pick a quote that they will have as the centerpiece for their project. The quote should relate directly to the images the chose to create as well as to the themes that they learned from their studies of American Indian culture. Students will use the combination of imagery and text to work as a unified piece and “say something” specific. Students will be able to choose texts from only American and American Indian authors. They may want to choose from the Sherman Alexie excerpts, or the poetry in the previous portions of the unit. The key factor will be the connection between the text and the idea they are conveying in the pair of images. When their quote is selected, students will be introduced to basic principles of typography and design. In order to create their text block, students will have to pick fonts and colors, and placement that support the mood and themes they are trying to portray. Group work will be the format for discussing all the possible design elements that will effect their artistic goals.
