The Scream, by Edvard Munch

The Scream, by Edvard Munch

For the past couple of weeks, students in my class have been busy making their interpretation of Edvard Munch’s famous “Scream” painting.

In your agenda:

In order for students to earn their last blogging badges, they will need to leave 3 quality comments. I’ll only count one comment per student per day. Students are welcome to do this at home. I’ll find time in the day for students to use school computers.
