I used colored pencils to draw this picture. This picture represents resolving war and the world all living together. This is important to me because I think it portrays something positive. John Lennon is a very good role model.

_National Board Certified Art Teacher Technology Specialist Endorsed Curriculum and Instruction M.Ed
teach middle school art in the suburban Chicago area. This project has
allowed my eighth grade students to confront global issues and to have
an artistic voice that expresses their concerns and passions that one
day just might change the world.
Global Perspectives Teacher World History, U.S. History, and Social Studies Endorsed Curriculum and Instruction M.Ed
I teach with Emily Cook in a Chicago suburban school. While my students have learned about global issues in the past, this project allowed them to see that these are not problems that people in other places in the world have to deal with, but rather, that these are world problems, and since we all have a civic responsibility to the world, these are our problems too.
