I have many struggling readers and writers. Some are special Ed and some are English Language Learners. Incoporating art into my lessons will help engage them in the reading/writing lesson. Also would provide them visuals to help develop background knowledge And vocabulary skills. Using art would give them a springboard for their own ideas and encourage them to write and learn more words.
Students will learn vocabulary around an interdisciplinary theme linking English to social studies. They will learn to write letters as a person from a certain time in history. Theywill create travel brochures, maps, posters . They can work in groups to come up with ideas for writing topics.
