Five-week online course through Friday, February 24, 2017
This five-week course explores the relevance of visual literacy in every classroom. The course includes opportunities for educators to practice concept mapping, inquiry-based discussion, and multimodal activities in their own classrooms and reflect within a collaborative peer learning community. Participants learn effective strategies to guide student discussions about works of art and create a portfolio of visual literacy activities based on the North Carolina Museum of Art's collection.
Participants gain an understanding of the relevance of visual literacy in the classroom and how strategies can support the ELA Anchor Standards for Literacy through the practice and application of literacy-related activities focused on comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency. This course is designed for teachers of all disciplines and audiences. A certificate of participation for 10 hours in art or literacy will be provided (1 CEU, with prior approval from the local school system).
