Mural "Snapshot"

"Snapshots" Guidelines:

  1. Create a new page on your digital portfolio or a tackk page.
  2. Add photos, video clips, images of your sketches/notes, your ThingLink about your mural research, and other visual elements to your snapshot.
  3. Describe your experiences while working on the mural. Try to give a clear picture of how the mural project and your understanding developed. (Use the questions below for inspiration if you're not sure what to write about.)

* Think of this as a digital journal-type reflection on the mural process. Be clear, specific, and thorough in your discussion of your experiences. Your goal is to clearly represent YOUR personal experiences while working on the mural project.
