Learning to Read through the Arts and Humanities: A Reading Program--An Art Program.
O'Brien, Bernadette C.
This paper explains the methodology for combining reading and art instruction in a Learning to Read Through the Arts program. Art and reading teachers collaborate to determine the vocabulary required for discussion of each art project. Once this is done, the art teacher uses that vocabulary in a discussion of the art topic, and the reading teacher, in turn, applies reading and writing assignments to the art subject. In this way, reading skills are developed as they apply to other subjects, making reading a learning tool and integrating the learning experience. (RL)
