We viewed a collage of images and tried to discern what all the pictures have in common. The answer was dreams.
We discussed the prevalence of dreams today and in the past (Shakespeare) and across cultures.
We did a gallery walk of 8 stations about different dream myths. On our note taking template, we recorded:
a. type of being/name
b. culture of origin
c. physical description
d. power or influence over dreams
One of the myths was about Spider Woman. We read another single page informational text about the symbolic importance of spiders across culture. We wrote one take away message from the reading on a post-it note and stuck it on our door (decorated with a web and spider) as an exit slip of “what stuck with you.”
We’ll be making dream catchers next class.
