M333 visual pedagogy project by Hennessey Whalen

  1. 1. Visual Pedagogy Project TRANSMEDIATION
  2. 2. What is Transmediation? A project in which students are asked to provide a visual response to a topic, issue or reading to social studies, science or language arts.
  3. 3. Guiding Questions What does the child’s visual response tell me about what they took from and understood from the story? In what ways does this project make it evident that “transmediation” is a good strategy to use in the classroom, in terms of students’ responses for reflections to concepts or topics?
  4. 4. My Project I read the book Swamp Angel by Anne Isaacs, to a 5th grade student and a 3rd grade student without showing them the illustrations. After reading the book once I asked the students to respond to the reading through a drawing. I told them they could show how the book make them them feel, what it made them think about, or a related topic.
  5. 5. Why…? Goldberg  Pg. 1: “The arts provide a methodology by which students can transform their observations into a creative form.”  Pg. 9: “Art is a language of expression and communication that has always been a fundamental aspect of human condition and perpetuation of cultures.” Wilson  Pg. 24: “Children are easily able to convey their thoughts and ideas through drawing.”

  7. 7. The Product: 3rd Grader
  8. 8. My Project Continued After seeing the students responses to the book without being able to see the illustrations, I thought I would be interesting to see if their views or conceptualizations of the story would change if they were able to look at the illustrations while reading. I read the students the book again showing them the illustrations on each page as I read. I again asked the students to respond to the book through a drawing.
  9. 9. Why…? Goldberg  Pg. 5: “By exercising their imaginations through subject matter- related artwork, children are more likely to make connections and transcend previous limitations.” Fountas/Olsen  Pg. 4: “If a drawing is a means of thinking and processing information, of communicating what is known and understood, and of relating ones self to a body of knowledge then a more complete and/or expressive and better composed drawing provides another window for understanding the complexity of student thinking and communication skills.” Ballenge/Morris  Pg. 5: “Learning how to make connections and not see subjects or people in isolated, unrelated ways is a lifelong skill that is vitally important for students to learn.”

  11. 11. The Product: 3rd Grader
  12. 12. Personal Pedagogy I believe strongly in the importance of incorporating art into the curriculum for both the teacher and the students  It gives the teacher insight into student thinking that they may not otherwise have access to  Gives the students a universal way to communicate their ideas to the teacher and their peers  Allows students to explore topics that may be too advanced to understand through text  It provides a common “language” and form of expression for all students
  13. 13. Transmediation in the Classroom What I’ve Learned:  Transmediation is a very useful tool in the classroom.  Provides a great way to elicit responses from children who do not yet have developed linguistic or writing skills  Provides opportunity to fully involve English Language Learners in to the lesson  Engages students and gets them excited about relaying their thoughts and ideas to others  Creates and easy way for teachers to understand student thinking
  14. 14. Why this is important for teachers Oreck  It is important for teachers to view art not as a separate subject to be taught, but rather to integrate art into many subjects for a variety of instructional purposes.  Teachers are able to articulate a wide range of clear performance and personal growth goals for students through involvement in arts processes. Goldberg  Pg. 25: “The arts deepen teachers’ awareness of students abilities and provide alternative methods of assessment.”
