PBL Spotlight: Using Art and Language to Understand Illness
For their third quarter project, Drew's 7th graders discussed how they could effectively spread awareness about prevalent illnesses in their community. Students looked at artists' renderings of personal experiences with mental illnesses like Depression and Schizophrenia. They talked about how art could convey experiences like mental illness. Our Drew Eagles then used art and descriptive language to create poster presentations about mental illnesses relevant in their community.
