Integrate Reading, Writing, and Art!
Use visualization as a prewriting strategy and drawings to assess comprehension.
With Draw and Write Literature Response templates, students draw first when responding to literature, then write to explain, clarify, and describe the ideas depicted in their drawings. This strategy is especially appropriate for visual learners and for ELL students and students with special needs.

lessons and resources are designed to foster student creativity, choice, and independence, and to encourage authentic art-making. Consideration is given to developmental appropriateness, differentiation possibilities, and teacher individuality. For this reason, directions are general, expectations are open-ended, and clip art on student pages is kept to a minimum.
