Connecting to Your Teaching
Reflect on Your Practice
- What challenges do your students have in reading and making sense of works of literature?
- How can you use artworks to provide inspiration for students, or as models for the ways they can express themselves?
- Who in your school might you collaborate with on a project that fuses story interpretation and visual art making?
- What constraints of time, scheduling, and resources would you face in trying to collaborate closely with another teacher? How might you overcome these obstacles?
Adaptations/Extensions To Consider
Scale it back: Use less elaborate materials – ask children to paint round wooden plates or paper plates representing characters and themes in a novel.
Connect to your interests: Choose a different artist whose work speaks to you and share it with students as the model or inspiration their own creative work.
