No. 324 | Using Art to Teach Reading Comprehension Strategies: Lesson Plans for Teachers
Jennifer Klein and Elizabeth Stuart
Using Art to Teach Reading Comprehension Strategies presents six strategies for using art to teach reading comprehension. Each chapter begins with an overview of the strategy, followed by lesson plans which include the Core Standards that will be met, and the literacy benefits of the lessons. The strategies presented are: Making Connections, Questioning, Visualizing, Inferring, Determining Importance, and Synthesizing.
This book serves as “a valuable resource for all teachers and art teachers looking for an integrated approach to teaching reading/language arts and the visual arts” (Robert Sabol, Professor of Visual and Performing Arts, Purdue University). Both authors have taught elementary classes in Rockville, Maryland; Klein a reading specialist, and Stuart is the content specialist for art, theater, and dance for Montgomery Public Schools.
This text aims to help teachers create lessons that use art to teach comprehension strategies, meet Core Standards, and also help students gain skills to use outside of the classroom.
