Learning To "See Beyond": Sixth-Grade Students' Artistic Perceptions of "The Giver."
Whitelaw, Jessica; Wolf, Shelby A.
New Advocate, v14 n1 p57-67 Win 2001
Encourages students to slow down and to reflect upon what they had read. Focuses on the visual arts, particularly for their capacity to help move students from the concrete to the abstract. Notes that Lowry's (1993) novel "The Giver" particularly lent itself to this approach because its powerful visual imagery encourages readers to return to and reflect upon the novel. (SC)
