Engaging hands, hearts & minds: Creating passionate young readers and writers.
Picturing Writing: Fostering Literacy Through Art® and Image-Making Within The Writing Process® are two innovative, evidence-based approaches to teaching writing and enhancing literacy learning developed by Beth Olshansky to meet the needs of a wide range of learners. Through the use of simple, hands-on art techniques, the study of quality picture books, and an ongoing Artists/Writers Workshop, students become immersed in the reading/writing process through crafting their own quality picture books aligned with the grade-level standards and integrated into the curriculum. They learn to read like a writer and see like an artist.
I just don’t know what happens. Whenever I go to Artists/Writers Workshop, all sorts of good stuff just pops into my head. – Chris, grade 1
