Overview

Making images is as natural to humans as speaking. In fact, it is a language-a way to communicate, think, express, and explore. When pictures and words work together to create meaning, literacy's potential expands.

The thirteen contributors to New Entries share ways they are working to connect the visual arts to literacy instruction as well as to their own lives. Teachers from elementary school through college take you into their classrooms and show how writing, art, and reading can be combined in different ways in subject areas. You join Peter von Euler and his students on their journey to explore writing through art; get an inside look at how Mary Stein and Brenda Power invite their students to "put art on a scientist's palette"; and learn with Peter Thacker as he explains his process of combining imagery and story in his reading class.

The chapters in this book give you snapshots of whole classes and take you in for a closer look with case studies of individual children. The stories of these teachers and their classroom explorations create powerful practical theory that will invite you to begin your own explorations, starting with some of the strategies explained within these pages.

All of the papers in New Entries were written at the invitation of the editors and are printed here for the first time.
