  14. 14. HOW TO GET YOUR STUDENTS TO COMMUNICATE ABOUT ART? • Offer different styles and media (Realism, Baroque, Impressionism, Expressionism, abstract art; painting, photography, sculpture) • Let students choose what kind of art they would like to talk about (provide image bank, free search in Internet, museum visit) • Let students produce different Textsorten • Presentational: • Interpersonal • interpretive
  15. 15. ÖSTERREICH. MALERISCH • Presents a series of pictures • Is organized by theme rather than chronologically (Mädchen und Frauen; Im Gespräch; Szenen; Abstraktes) • Lets students either assign titles from a “word bank” or find their own titles • → gives students a greater overview
