PALS Project: Art as a Learning Strategy. A Guide for Teachers and Students.
Rabson, Barbara Burchuk, Ed.; Warshaw, Renata Karlin, Ed.
The book describes Learning to Read through the Arts (LTRTA), a curriculum combining art activities with writing and reading in small group workshops. The methodology of LTRTA has been applied and modified to work with different groups of students: perceptually impaired, reading disabled, and gifted students. Workshops are offered in mixed media, mime, yoga, sculpture, musical instruments and mask making, space and photography. The workshps motivate children to write, discuss, and read aloud their own creative writing. The book provides examples of some of the lessons in LTRTA classrooms and includes teacher descriptions of activities and student work. Information is also presented on the school, grades, student background, type of workshop, and materials needed. (CL)
