Workbook Series - Rooster Head
This workbook contains 5 sketching and journaling activities to help students design Art projects based upon the main character in the story. The journal entries will help them weave parts of their identities, values, interests, and beliefs into the finished Art pieces so that they see themselves reflected in the main character.
Each activity ends with an opportunity for the student to share their finished Art piece with the class as a way to celebrate their authentic selves, amplify the message of the story with their voice, and co-create a more inclusive classroom experience.
