Opinion Writing Using Art Integration and Henri Matisse
This mini opinion writing unit will leave you speechless at what your writers can accomplish as they reach deep within themselves to express their opinions about art, while using reasons, or evidence from the painting. They simply see things in artwork that adults cannot and their ability to write about it will amaze you. This is one of my favorite writing units.
This packet contains lesson ideas to begin the unit and get your writers writing. It includes resources containing questions for you to ask and questions to guide your students' writing. It also includes teacher models and discussion triggers related to elements of each painting. Enjoy!!
