Lesson Plan: Graffiti in Egypt's Revolution

In this lesson plan, developed by Brown University's Choices Proogram, students explore the role of graffiti in the Egyptian Revolution. Students consider the potential impact of graffiti on a larger scale and the ways in which it has been censored. The lesson includes videos and a pre-made PowerPoint presentation to support class discussion. It concludes with a broader discussion about graffiti and asks students: Is graffiti art or vandalism?

The core objectives of this lesson plan are that students will:

1. Assess the role of graffiti in political protest.
2. Use a short video to analyze the relevance of graffiti during the Egyptian revolution (January 2011-present).
3. Articulate opinions on graffiti and censorship.
