Art and Language: Visual Literacy for World Languages and English Language Learners

September 27, 2014
Ryan Education Center, Studio C
$50; 5 CPDUs

Art and art museums offer rich opportunities for language development and expression in ways that stir curiosity and promote inquiry and creativity. This workshop explores how teachers can use visual art and the museum as powerful tools to help World Language and English Language Learners (ELLs) encounter language in dynamic ways, build vocabulary, and make sense of new cultural contexts. Participants will learn and practice strategies for engaging with works of art in the museum galleries, sample activities to use in their classrooms, and collaborate with peers to develop connections across the curriculum.

This workshop will focus  on the exhibition What May Come: The Taller de Gráfica Popular and the Mexican Political Print.
