Overview

Using Art to Teach Reading Comprehension Strategies: Lesson Plans for Teachers will provide both classroom and art teachers with an overview of six different reading strategies and integrated reading and art lessons that they can implement in their own classrooms and schools. Addressing specific National Visual Art Standards, Common Core Standards for Reading, and National Reading Standards, this book is designed so that classroom and art teachers work either in collaboration in schools where there are visual arts teachers, or independently if school staff does not include a visual arts instructor. This teacher friendly, easy-to-use book offers background information on the strategies and lessons that allow teachers to copy student materials and begin implementing this approach in their classrooms right away. Art can be a critical tool in helping students’ develop and refine reading strategies. When reading strategies are presented in the context of art first, the students are better able to incorporate these tools into their reading. Stuart and Klein prove that art provides the scaffolding children need to move from a text-free environment to a text environment.

Each lesson is field tested and very relevant to teachers ofa variety ofage groups in both visual art and reading. The potential for the suggested lessons is great as they are flexible enough to incorporate any text or artwork and could provide a compliment to just about anyconcept being taught.This is a must have for any teacherlooking to improve students' comprehension skills!

This is an excellent guide for both new and experienced teachers. Art and classroom teachers will find the book invaluable. It offers practical advice and well developed lessons for integrating art with reading strategies.
Educators will appreciate the list of literary and visual references.In addition, the charts and graphic organizers are easily accessible. This is a perfect book for hands on teaching and a desktop library.
