Read Shel Silverstein’s classic Where the Sidewalk Ends prior to the workshop and then, while at the museum, discover innovative ways to connect the book’s quirky characters, silly poems, and whimsical sketches with artworks from the Amon Carter’s collection. Participants look at and discuss artworks from a variety of media, learn visual literacy strategies, and explore ways to infuse language arts curriculum with images that make poetry units come to life.
Participants will receive two CPE hours in: English/Language Arts: All Levels, Fine Arts—Art: All Levels, and Instructional Techniques: All Levels
Elementary school librarians and art, gifted and talented, language arts, and reading teachers from classroom and homeschool settings, as well as preservice teachers, are encouraged to attend, although others may benefit and are welcome to register.
