My closing activity for my class each term is for groups to create a visual metaphor of their “take away” from the entire class (alternatively, they can create a “word wall wordle”. So after an entire term of content, discussion, assignments, etc…. What are they leaving with. We then post them on the wall and do a gallery walk and docent guided tours.
I’ve never thought of adding blogging to this activity. I might have them blog about their part of creating their own group’s visual metaphor (individual voice, individual accountability). Or, I could have them respond to another group’s creation in terms of what they liked about that product that they wish they had included in their own or had let slip through the cracks.
