If walls could talk, they would tell us stories about people, families, relationships, communities, wars, cultures and buildings.

In this project, you’re going to:

  • choose a wall that tells a story. The wall can be physical or metaphorical, and the story can be historical, geographical, personal, cultural.
  • write a report about your talking wall.
  • create art work about your report.
  • talk about your wall to your group.

First think in groups about examples for each of these categories:  archeology, architecture, art, biblical walls, connecting walls, dividing walls, emotional walls, famous walls, graffitti, memorial walls, natural walls, murals, political walls, religious walls, social walls, walls in literature.

  • Make a list of questions about the wall you have chosen.
  • Answer these questions in full sentences. Pay attention to your grammar and spelling.
  • Your report must include the following:
  1. Table of contents.
  2. Introduction.
  3. Sections of the Project
  4. Conclusion.
  5. Bibliography. (Don’t forget to cite all the internet sites you used in your project
  6. Reflection. Write a page in which you express what you learned/gained through doing this project.
  7. Appendices.
  8. Illustrations.

    Draw a picture that expresses the “Wall” that you chose to research.
