Overview:

The purpose of this lesson plan is to help students synthesize their global health knowledge through visual representation. Students will create a piece of artwork through an iterative process that reflects their personal understanding of global health and participate in a facilitated discussion to reflect on the broader implications of the artwork. Using art to facilitate discussion allows students to process the class material by exploring their personal connections with the complex concepts.
