"A picture is worth a thousand words.”
We are using visual images to everything from literature to history, from science to math. We're using classic and modern art to spark interest, teach comprehension, and inspire writing and conversation. From beginning to end, this session is chockablock with ideas to add color and creativity to your classroom. Take notes, because these simple ideas are easily included in your classroom next week!
In this session, we will use these questions specifically of works of art. A couple of years ago, I attended the teacher institute at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. Combining what I learned at the institute with the concept of academic rigor and my love for early American history, I am looking forward to recording this presentation and making it available to participants online.
