A Collaboration between the History Department, Art Department and the Dan Eldon Education Team
Expression is the most important part of being a human being. We express ourselves in many different ways – through music, dress, words, paintings, behaviour, and attitudes. This is what your journal should become.
Using Dan’s journals as a model, this activity asks you to create a journal that expresses your feelings around what you will learn about genocide, as well as the remarkable efforts by survivors and families to heal.
This portfolio will represent you, however you wish to express that. How will you design your portfolio? What will be your starting point? What colours will you use? Bright? Dark? Saturated or de-saturated? Any images? Words? Photos? Certificates? Letters? Objects? Will your journal be neat? messy? ripped? crumpled? Abstract?
