Reflection: Rigor Map-o-lage Presentations (Day 2 of 2) - Section 2: Students Present Map-o-lages


Attached is an awesome SP mapolage.  This student explained the connections between the images and ideas, and the relationships associated between all of them, integrating insights across two units of study.  Particularly impressive is the image of the eye: this is a symbolic aspect of "Hollywood and the Pits" that we did not discuss in class, as the grandmother in the story (very minor character) makes false eyelashes, which are sort of emblematic of the false stage life the the main character forsakes in order to find herself in the La Brea Tar Pits.
