Type: Learning Activity

Overview:

This intermediate low to intermediate-high activity focuses on the controversy surrounding artistic expression and graffiti. Students start by reading an article about the controversy in Colombia and then check their comprehension with a series of multiple-choice questions. Within the article, difficult words are highlighted in blue. If a student places the cursor over these words they will see a definition to assist them.  Afterward, students watch a short video clip about Stinkfish, a known graffiti artist from Colombia, and respond to a series of reflection questions in writing or in a group discussion. Students then work individually or in groups to research other graffiti artists in Colombia before sharing their findings with the class. Finally, students make comparisons between the themes of their researched artist and the themes noted in graffiti throughout the United States.
