Transcript

  • 1. MOSAIC PROJECT OF COBA, MEXICO AND WILTON MANORS, FLORIDA • An international service learning program sponsored and coordinated by THE GOLDEN RULE FOUNDATION
  • 2. WE STARTED OUR JOURNEY LOOKING FOR A SCHOOL IN ANOTHER COUNTRY WHERE THE CHILDREN EXPERIENCE VASTLY DIFFERENT TRADITIONS, CULTURES, AND STYLE OF LIVING
  • 3. THROUGH THE GOLDEN RULE FOUNDATION’S, SECOND INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY SERVICE- LEARNING EFFORT PROGRAM THE COBA/WILTON MANORS MOSAIC PROJECT WAS BORN.
  • 4. THE MOSAIC PROJECT WAS ENVISIONED AS AN EXPLORATION IN ART, HISTORY, CULTURE AND COMMUNITY BETWEEN TWO SCHOOLS, TWO CULTURES, AND TWO COUNTRIES
  • 5. WITH HELP AND DIRECTION FROM THE GOLDEN RULE FOUNDATION WE WERE ABLE TO CONTACT LUIS MANUEL MAY KU, AN ARTIST AND 4TH GRADE TEACHER IN A SMALL MAYAN VILLAGE IN MEXICO IN THE YUCATAN, CALLED COBA.
  • 6. COBA IS LOCATED IN THE STATE OF QUINTANA ROO, ON THE MEXICAN PENINSULA OF YUCATAN. IT IS LOCATED ABOUT 90 KM EAST OF THE MAYA SITE OF CHICHEN ITZA
  • 7. ABOUT 40 KM WEST OF THE CARIBBEAN SEA, AND 44KM NORTHWEST OF THE SITE OF TULUM
  • 8. THE MOSAIC PROJECT BETWEEN WILTON MANORS ELEMENTARY AND COBA WAS DIVIDED INTO SEVERAL PHASES, INCLUDING CULTURAL AND ARTISTIC IDENTITY EXPLORATION
  • 9. THE COMMUNITY IS CHARACTERIZED BY A LARGE MAYAN ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE LOCATED AROUND TWO LAGOONS.
  • 10. IT IS AN IMPORTANT POST-CLASSIC ERA SITE AND AMONGST ITS TEMPLE STRUCTURES, THE NOHOCH MUL PYRAMID REACHES 42 METERS, THE TALLEST IN THE YUCATAN
  • 11. THE COMMUNITY WAS THE FORTUNATE BENEFACTOR OF A SMALL LIBRARY TWO YEARS AGO, AND THE BUILDING HAS TWO SMALL ADDITIONAL BUILDINGS WHICH SERVE AS A CASA DE LA CULTURA
  • 12. THE LIBRARY WAS A PAST PROJECT LED BY KENNA NOONE KIRPATRICK OF ROLLINS COLLEGE, A PRESENT COLLABORATOR FOR THE GOLDEN RULE’S EFFORTS IN THE AREA
  • 13. ONE OF THE ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF OUR PROGRAM IS THE 12 CHARACTER TRAITS • The students learn these traits through an international Character Education program entitled Passport to Peace.
  • 14. INTERNATIONAL DIALOGUE • It creates an international dialogue based on 12 values: • confidence, • independence, • creativity, • empathy, • commitment, • cooperation, • tolerance, • respect, • enthusiasm, • curiosity, • honesty, and • appreciation
  • 15. PASSPORT TO PEACE • The students of Wilton Manors Elementary decided that the value that is most representative of them on the mural, is the value of Tolerance.
  • 16. TOLERANCE STAR MARKED THE CITY OF WILTON MANORS ON THE MOSAIC • Children chose tolerance, because the children at Wilton Manors Elementary have learned that through tolerance, dialogue is possible with an open and respectful mindset • This is particularly important given that we live in such a diverse and global society in which intercultural understanding and respect is an essential aspect in the 21st century.
  • 17. ONCE THE CHILDREN AT WILTON MANORS ELEMENTARY AND THE CHILDREN IN COBA FINISHED THEIR MOSAIC PIECES FOR THE MURALS TWO REPRESENTATIVES FROM WILTON MANORS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TRAVELED TO COBA TO EXCHANGE THE MOSAIC PIECES.
  • 18. THROUGH THEIR STUDIES THE CHILDREN FROM WILTON MANORS ELEMENTARY LEARNED THAT THEY HAD MANY MORE AMENITIES, CONVENIENCES, AND SUPPLIES THAN THE CHILDREN IN COBA.
  • 19. DR. ANA MARIA LEON COORDINATOR OF THE MOSAIC PROJECT AT WILTON MANORS ELEMENTARY created exchangeable video diaries with the children in both Wilton Manors and Coba documenting their experience during the Mosaic Project.
  • 20. THE COMMUNICATION OF THE SHARED EXPERIENCE BETWEEN ELEMENTARY STUDENTS AT EACH PROJECT SITE LEAD TO THE CREATION OF LARGE WALL MOSAIC MURALS IN EACH OF THE CITIES
  • 21. PASSPORT TO PEACE CLOSING CEREMONY • During the ceremony the children “traveled” to Mexico, as a demonstration of appreciation. •the children at Wilton Manors Elementary performed Mexican dances they learned, read poems written by the children in Coba, and viewed the video diary made by the children of Coba.
  • 22. WILTON MANORS MOSAIC MAY 27, 2010 FT. LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA

  • 24. THIS COMPLETED THE VISION THAT EACH CITY WOULD HAVE A MOSAIC MURAL MADE IN PART BY THE CHILDREN FROM COBA, AND IN PART BY THE CHILDREN FROM WILTON MANORS
  • 25. PROJECT IS TO LEAVE A LEGACY TO ALL THE CHILDREN, TEACHERS, AND FAMILIES INVOLVED BY DEMONSTRATING THE FEASIBILITY OF INTERCULTURAL DIALOG DESPITE THE VERY DIVERSE CULTURAL BACKGROUND OF OUR POPULATIONS.
