Lesson Plan, Video


A lesson plan process, three short videos that show how to teach adjectives to primary students using Art and the Visual Thinking Strategies Method. Our school district trains teachers to have healthy discussions about art, students then build a Word Wall around the vocabulary heard in the discussion and then write about their thinking after the discussion. I have created an inquiry based method to teach the same way, using the same questions, based on student writing in the classroom. Please go to vtshome.org to find out more about how to teach VTS in the classroom. My method shows how to teach students writing skills using ART as the vehicle.
