Sergio Gonzales-Tornero, Wolf,1973, aquatint with embossing
Lesson plan developed by Luke Kloberdanz, Ouisconsing School of Collaboration, Lodi, Wisconsin
Summary of Activity
Students will learn how common folk tales from around the world have altered people’s views about certain animals. Using Sergio Gonzales-Tornero's aquatint, Wolf, as a launching point, students will read fiction and nonfiction resources to find inaccuracies in the ways that animals, such as the wolf, have been represented over time and how those perceptions have impacted the species. Students will use fictional writing to accurately represent a misrepresented animal by creating a "flipped" folk tale.
