In our communications class, we talked about our goals for when we leave PTP. We each came up with one goal and we talked about what was stopping us from reaching that goal, in other words, the barriers to our goal.
We worked in teams and came up with different ideas about how to represent the barriers in a drawing. Some groups represented the barriers as rocks falling across our road, another group used a mountain as a barrier, other groups used water to represent flooding and another group used tombstones because they felt “buried” by the barriers, stress and life experiences they’d had.
Then we came up with many different ways we get support to help us get around or through or over these barriers. Supports are represented by a bridge, a boat, a ladder, a detour, balloons and wings on our posters.
After we had everything figured out, we started drawing our ideas. We had to make a rough draft first and then we used flip chart paper and coloured markers to create our posters.
There was a lot of discussion and team work involved and it took us just over a week to complete our projects.
We’d love it if you came in to see what we did! In the meantime, here are photos of the posters. Click on a poster to see a larger version.
