Pairs

Birds in the hand, peas in a pod: today is about pairs.

Ready to roll? All you need to do is…

  • Write a new post on your iBlog in response to the prompt.

Need more ideas? Not sure what to write around Pairs?

  • Pick two people who don’t seem to have much in common — people you know, celebrities, historical figures, fictional characters, up to you! — and write a story about what happens when they’re forced to spend time together.
  • Pair different media in one post: add images to a story, add video to a photo essay, add sketches to a collection of haiku.
  • Tell us about the best meal you’ve ever had, the best trip you’ve ever taken, or the best book you’ve ever read, and pair each one with a song. Bonus points for embedding the songs in your post!
  • Look at your nearest pair of shoes. What stories do the scuffs tell?

Fences

What are the main purposes for building fences?

What ideas are suggested about fences in the following photos?

Collect images of fences. Can you find images that seem to suggest an idea related to a course focus question?

Create your own photo essay or bulletin board poster(try Adobe Indesign) featuring a photograph of a fence.

Make sure your poser can be read from about 2 meters away. Your photoessay should contain 3-5 images with only a couple sentences arguing your photo’s connection to your focus.
