This paper details a research study, conducted by the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) and Toledo Public Schools (TPS), outlining the impact of visual literacy interventions on pre-literacy development. Because TPS K-3 students regularly fail the state report card in literacy, the two groups co-developed a curriculum that enhanced tier two vocabulary acquisition for preschool students. Elements of the curriculum, detailed in the paper, included regular visits to the TMA and curricula interventions in TPS classrooms further promote art museums as valuable resources for learning in and out of schools.
