The students gained so much from this unit. Firstly they learned about Adinkra symbols and their importance in Ghanaian society. The students then had to create their own proverb, wise saying or helpful statement for the Lincoln Community. Their sayings were based on the learner profile and what they personally thought was important for achieving a successful life whilst here at LCS. The next step was to follow the design process to design their own symbol. The students learned the difference between an illustration and a symbol and how to push their ideas. This design was then carved out of rubber and printed onto a variety of papers. After learning about movement, focal point and contrast the students then had to incorporate these principles into their posters. For a 6 week unit there were certainly many skills to be gained.
