Unit Overview 

Through literature and discussion, students learn the concept of serial reciprocity and explore the contributions artists make for the common good.

Service Experience 
 Art from the heart: Celebrate students artistic talents and find a way to share these talents with others. Follow your students’ voices to find an organization or group of people who would appreciate a poem, greeting card, or homemade piece of art to brighten their day or let them know someone cares. This may be soldiers, veterans, elderly people in a retirement home, or a local child with a serious illness.
