Work Together Print Texts Disciplinary Literacy
in Art Art & Literacy References and Weblinks Literacy is essential for learning in an art classroom. Students must be prepared to write self-reflections, understand vocabulary terms, and participate in classroom critiques. In the video, refugees from Iraq shared their thoughts and feelings through a canvas. All the participants contributed their thoughts about Australia and Iraq coming together as one. This is a beautiful example how literacy and art work together. •Greater sensitivity to metaphors, symbols, and underlying themes
•Greater commitment to expressing and finding meaning in text
•Better abstract reasoning skills, used in reading and writing
•Better spatial-temporal reasoning skills used in reading,
verbal expression, and writing
•Improved comprehension 1. Self-reflections of work
2. Critiquing others work as well as having your peers critique your own
3. Feldman's Method: description, formal analysis (art criticism), interpretation, and evaluation
4. Artists use medium-specific language Oral -ALNF's Subtext: Art for Literacy: Youtube.com Paint Strips Telling a story is like painting a picture, using words instead of paint. In this cooler-than-average writing activity, your student uses paint and words to write a story! Paint samples often have unique and interesting names such as Western Sand, Beach Basket, and Mermaid Tear. These names make the perfect story-starters to inspire creative storytelling. They may already be picturing a California beach picnic interrupted by a crying mermaid—what a story! All the animals in this book are made up with the letter that their name starts with in different fonts. There are so cool and you can use this book for both younger and upper (middle school) projects. One can also tie in the idea of contour line drawing and then filling the space with typography. Older students will need to fill their drawing with descriptive words along with one letter. Alphabeasties: And Other

Videos This was the winning video from the 2008 Learning Through the Arts Media Literacy student symposium, held in Toronto. Students learned to think critically about the messages they saw about youth on television and through other mediums and then created their own media texts for how they thought youth should be portrayed. Students came up with story lines, created storyboards, thought about camera angles, direction, acting and video production. 10 classes from across the GTA then came together to vote on which class created the best storyboard depicting youth. This class won and had the opportunity to actually produce their storyboard, by making the video. For more on Learning Through the Arts and the Media Literacy Program, please visit www.ltta.ca.

Literacyhead includes lessons to support students during read aloud, writing workshop, tier two vocabulary instruction, and more. From original comic strips written to illustrate mini-lesson topics during writing workshop to read aloud lessons featuring interior illustrations from new and classic picture books, Literacyhead can help you teach the standards with less work and more student engagement. Like text, visual art, music, theater, and dance are symbol systems. Thus use of these symbol systems is a form of literacy and develops abilities needed for reading and writing. Benefits include: http://www.guggenheim.org/new-york/education/school-educator-programs/learning-through-art/for-educators/find-lessons In Looking at Art you will find a database of art investigations prepared for classroom use, as well as tips on leading investigation discussions. Each art investigation is accompanied by background information about the artwork to be discussed and questions to ask students. Project Girl -Disciplinary Literacy in Art: https://sites.google.com/a/dpi.wi.gov/disciplinary-literacy-in-fine-arts/ Our primary task involves looking at art and film/TV, but to accomplish this we must engage a set of related cultural issues that have to do with who we are and how we process our world. The concern of this course is not focused on what you think, but on the visual and cultural processes that help influence and shape your thinking. The class is structured to increase your visual comprehension, critical thinking skills and cultural awareness. http://www.arts.ucsb.edu/faculty/taschian/classes/arts1a/ Project Girl combines art, media literacy, and youth led activism.
It uses art as a means to educate and inspire girls to create social change. Girls are encouraged to take charge of their lives and to question what the media shows them. This program helps get young girls thinking critically about art and the messages they can send. They are working collaboratively to achieve the same goal, seeking to have their voices heard. Critical thinking, working collaboratively, and speaking are all devices used in literacy, and working with Project Girl not only incorporates these devices, but it gives girls a chance to impact their community as well. -Project Girl's Consumerism Explored Through Contemporary Art: youtube.com -Scholastic Art Magazine: http://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/products/scholastic-art
