Student Teacher


Students will learn about Nelson Mandela and Apartheid and imagine what it would be like to walk in the shoes of Nelson Mandela. Students will then research a global leader who has gone through adversity and made a positive difference in the world. They will honor the person through researching and creating a clay shoe sculpture using three or more symbols in their sculpture to tell the story of the person and include a quote that speaks to them personally. Students will create a video or presentation to explain their sculpture and tell about their individual. Students will print a code for their sculpture that links to their video. The sculptures will be displayed with the code for the school and community as they are invited to the Art Walk of Shoes. This lesson was developed by Laura Mitchell as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.
