We are United and We are Never Giving Up

My collection shows powerful images that represents my theme about Being United and Never giving up. I chose these 5 images for my collection because it can show you what the Chicano Movement is about and what Mexican immigrants are going through and what they went through. Without these strong people America probably wouldn't be the same.

Way of Life in Colonial America

The Colonial Period is very important for the reason that during this period, colonists spent this time forming a better life from their old one, at the same time learning and adapting to the new environment. Children during this period spend most of their childhood learning from their parents, there was not time for school. 

Nonetheless there are numerous innovations and ideas that have evolved and made it into present day society. In my collection of art work there is a mix of a little of everything that ties back to the way of living that took place during the colonial period. Most of these artwork correlate with daily lifestyles and also ways to pass time during the day.

Watersheds, Water Clarity & Human Impact on Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe has become a symbol of the controversial balance between preserving and expanding into natural systems. Tahoe’s clarity has also been decreasing since at least 1968; down from 100 feet of visibility to about 70 feet nowadays. Fine particles from urban expansion is one of the main causes, as well as the introduction of invasive species. These photos and questions will help students to understand some of the reasons why Tahoe is becoming murkier. They can provoke relevant ideas about how to slow that loss of clarity down or even reverse it, so that future generations of people and native species can enjoy and rely on this magnificent lake, just as we have done in the past. Simply click the paperclip in each image to see the prompts pertaining to each photo. This collection is ideal for a discussion-based lesson.
