Gate god protecting the UE door from evil spirits

Students collaborating

It is Chinese custom to place a print of a gate god on the front of your home or temple to ward off evil spirits. This week, every UE class collaborated on three different drawings of gate gods in preparation for the Chinese New Year. Before dividing students into three groups, we talked about what it meant to work as a team and how important it was that we respected everyone's ideas and feelings. It was inspiring to see students compromise with each other and I'm so proud of how well these turned out!
