EDU 505W  Book Arts and Literacy in the Classroom

This hands-on course introduces educators, with or without a visual arts background, to techniques and materials that will support their efforts to integrate the visual arts into their classrooms. Course content centers on Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC), an arts integration curriculum developed by the National Museum of Women in the Arts. ABC highlights the natural connections between visual arts and language arts and fosters students’ critical thinking and writing skills. Created for fourth-grade classrooms, ABC can be adapted for use by grades three and up. The course also explores online resources that provide additional, on-going support for arts integration. Participants will create a portfolio of artist’s books and writing samples as models for classroom lessons; learn the basics of Visual Thinking Strategies, a method for facilitating discussions about art; and develop ways to adapt, differentiate, and integrate the ABC curriculum in their classrooms.
