Van Gogh, Monet, Rodigue, Mondrian and so many more interesting artists to learn about! This one hour workshop will demonstrate a format for connecting literacy and art by developing cross-curricular lessons. Laura will use several stories highlighting different Artists, and will introduce corresponding Art projects and writing activities.
I will be emailing an outline, this Wednesday. Please have that with you, for the workshop. This is just for your own note taking.
Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you this Friday.
Laura Gilday has been an Elementary teacher in SD 57 for the past 28 years. She has taught several different grades as well as being a Support Teacher. Adrienne Gear's process for teaching reading strategies influenced her to use anchor books to introduce artists, and to connect art to writing. By using stories, students' knowledge of artists is deeper, and it gives a context for sparking writing activities.
