Are you using literacy strategies in your art room? If you are, you know how effective they can be for engaging students, connecting content areas with your lessons and providing an opportunity for children to analyze art.
If you’re not sure, you might be surprised with how easy you can adapt simple literacy strategies in your art room—so easy in fact, that you might be using some without even knowing it!
My guest today is Marisa Gebert. If her name sounds familiar, that’s because she is chief curriculum creator at Team Sparkle. Marisa aligns Common Core, Visual Art Standards, plus assessments and writing exercises into our Sparklers Club lessons. And, she is the architect behind the done-for-you art curriculum inside the Sparklers Club.
She earned her Masters degree in education with an emphasis on literacy and is one smart cookie.
