Gr 9’s Conversation about Conformity


You need to once more, ‘make thinking visible.’  Please select any one of the quotations on conformity below.  Using an A3 paper, illustrate that idea.  What does that idea LOOK like? You may use only up to FIVE words on your A3.  When you are done, please turn in your work, but before you do, take a photo of the work, and post it to your blog.  Ask friends what they think the illustration means.  Recruit comments!
