Welcome to the SMock Room!
These Visual Literacy lessons engage students in discussions based on art works, artists and artifacts. Students begin to observe, describe and tell using evidence from the particular work of art or artifact. As a resource for informational text, these Visual Literacy 'quickies' can be used within Literacy Circles or Centers, as whole group discussions and the bases for an art project, boosting the students critical thinking skills, oral vocabulary and high level concept comprehension. All Visual Literacy lessons can be used both in the art room and in the classroom, making art accessible to all students. Use the Visual Thinking questions to promote CCSS-ELA by using imagery as informational text, building students' critical thinking skills and observation skills.
This specific power point focuses on surrealist artist Rene Magritte.
You don't know who Magritte is?
No worries:) The guiding questions and instructions offers an easy instructional sequence for students to navigate independently or with guidance.
