Being a community
What is a community? What does that term mean to you? On a piece of paper, write down all of the images presented in one of the Tampa Portal artworks and what these images represent. Next, look in the St. Petersburg Times for examples of things that represent your community: photos, ads, words, cartoons. Write a creative writing story, poem or song defining your community and explaining how these images represent your community. Share your story or poem with your class. You also can share your poem or story with others by posting it here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
