The Power of Pictures
Creating Pathways to Literacy Through Art, Grades K-6Book - 2008
In The Power of Pictures book and companion DVD, Beth Olshansky introduces teachers to her art-based approach to literacy instruction. At the heart of her approach is the Artists/Writers Workshop. Through study of quality picture books and hands-on art experiences, students learn to visualize, "paint pictures with words," and ultimately create their own artistic and literary work. --From publisher's description.
