TEACHING LITERACY THROUGH ART

Teaching Literacy Through Art: Strategies for Discussing Art in the Classroom

Thu, Feb 5 & 12 and Fri, Apr 24 & May 19 am-3 pm

Learn how to facilitate open-ended conversations around works of art, and how to apply this methodology to teaching literacy and critical-thinking skills as well as social studies and science content. This four-day workshop stems from research conducted by the Guggenheim Museum, which concludes that discussing and creating art can lead to improvements in reading comprehension.

Tuition is $350 for four days and includes resource materials for the classroom.

Teachers of grades 2-12 in all subject areas are welcome to apply.

Enrollment is limited to 20 participants.

For more information, call 212 360 4260 or email learningthroughart@guggenheim.org.

Completed applications, with principal's approval, must be received by Dec 1.
