Welcome to the Smock Room!
I have created quick and easy Power Points to engage students critical thinking through art. These "Visual Literacy Quickies" are intended for classroom use and can be used in various formats (whole group, small group, literacy centers, enrichment opportunities, or just as fillers).
Simply, the students look at an artwork and respond to a series of questions, similar to questions targeted in the ELA-CCSS! This format encourages students to use the same skills of close reading by looking at art.
There is a quick hands-on art activity at the end of each presentation.
Contact me with any questions!
