This workshop is currently full.

Analyze, describe, evaluate, infer, interpret, and observe? Inquiry-based method or dialogical approach? What does it all mean and how can teachers help students understand how to do it? Using artworks from the museum’s collection and special exhibitions, Amon Carter educators explain and model all of these visual literacy strategies. Participants have the opportunity to practice using these techniques and collaborate with other teachers to create lessons that encourage dialogue and reflection.

Art, language arts, science, and social studies teachers from classroom and homeschool settings, as well as preservice teachers are encouraged to attend, although others may benefit and are welcome to register.

Region XI handles all registrations and fees for this program. Contact Melinda Casey at 817.740.3629 or mcasey@esc11.net for registration and pricing information.
