Transcript

  • 1. ART!
    CarlyNeun TE 922
  • 2. I love art: I draw it, I collect it, and I try and learn from it.
    Chances are some of our students will love art too, and that can be a powerful tool for understanding!
  • 3. Why?
    Illustrate a scene. This was drawn for me by my friend Kathleen Finn. It’s from a Battlestar Galactica story I wrote.
    A Secret Santa gift from a member of an online community. It was a nice way to give a gift without spending money.
    Visualize characters in stories. This one is Hana, a character of mine drawn by Yoo-min Lee.
  • 4. EXAMPLE: This was draw for a class in which we were asked to draw/create something to reflect the theme or characters of a story.
    This happens to be for Wuthering Heights. I chose to portray the differences between Heathcliff and Edgar Linton, and how that effects Cathrine.
  • 5. Art also teachers patience and practice.
    Also, you have to look closely at details to improve! That’s a good skill in literature too!
  • 6. See? Practice!

  • 7. Art Ideas for Class
    A short comic– This is mentioned in The English Teacher’s Companion (Burke). Students make a comic of an important scene, thinking about why it is important and give themselves a visual to refer back to while studying! I imagine this would also work well in a History class.
    A picture—Not just a doodle. Like my example for Wuthering Heights, students can create a picture incorporating important characters and thematic elements. You could ask students to write an explanation to go along with their art.
    Maps/Timelines—These and other projects can use student-drawn images to illustrate a historical, literary, or personal timeline. Maps of a journey, such as the traditional heroic journey, can help clarify difficult concepts. Even math and other core content areas can benefit from images!
