This is a request for help in developing an interdisciplinary
theme/concept for mural panels...

I teach one period a day of interdisciplinary work. In May I will be
working with an 8th grade reading class who have read the Diary of Ann
Frank. We will be creating murals (4 x 8 panels)(3 or 4 of them).
Could you all help me here? Rather than portraying the holocaust, I am
searching for an approach along the lines of strength on the
survivors....or peace begins in your own heart...or dissolving the walls
that divide us... I desire a concept/approach for these murals that
allows expression while focusing more on solutions; perhaps developing
around a theme of contrast...

I walked into school today marking the end of our spring recess, and
thought of the students and teachers in Littleton who will at some point
have to return to the classrooms. How sad this will be. I am involved
in relief work for Kosovar refugees, this allows me the opportunity to
speak of the need for peace beginning within each one of us. The news
from the Balkans is grim. And now...the holocaust...this has been a
'heavy' spring break.

Hoping for your help, and giving you my thanks in advance,
