Adjective Artwork is an unconventional way to introduce adjectives. Students recreate descriptive sentences (in task card format) by producing an accurate artistic depiction in an authentic piece of art. A teacher will be able to assess a student's level of understanding or confident mastery quickly and easily by simply looking at the student's artwork. This approach has been much more effective than any other teaching strategies I have used over the years. Students have a heightened awareness of the function and purpose of adjectives because they actually use the words to guide them as they complete a meaningful project they enjoy--- and I no longer have to check those "circle the adjective in the sentence" worksheets anymore!
