Visual journals are a rich learning tool that can deepen the learning on any topic. This document explains what visual journals are, why they are a powerful learning tool, and how to use them in the classroom. In addition, I have included three samples of visual journal assignments about one of the art elements, line, appropriate for high school Art I, or middle school art. All of this is in a word document so that you can edit the assignments I've suggested.
Other subject and teachers will find the 3-page description of visual journals useful because they can be used in any subject.
