Literacy + Art = High-Level Thinking (page 24)

LITERACY STUDY TOOLS

• Circling words they don’t know
• Inferring a meaning from context
• Using the dictionary and writing down the meaning
• Identifying pronouns and writing what they replace
• Using the syntax to deconstruct meaning
• Identifying the most important word
• Making connections to prior knowledge
• Asking questions about content, message or grammar
• Commenting on, analyzing and/or evaluating the message
• Agreeing or disagreeing with the message

ARTIST QUOTE SAMPLES

Georgia O’Keeffe
• “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way—things I had no words for.”
• “I had to create an equivalent for what I felt about what I was looking at—not copy it.”
• “I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life—and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.”
• “One can’t paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt.”


Vincent van Gogh
• “A good picture is equivalent to a good deed.”
• “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
• “One may have a blazing hearth in one’s soul and yet no one ever came to sit by it. Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on their way.”
• “The more I think about it, the more I realize there is nothing more artistic than to love others.”

MORE DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

• “Which quote do you like the most/least?” (evaluation)
• “Which quote do you agree/disagree with and why?” (analysis)
• “What do you know about Picasso’s character from a particular quote?” (synthesis)
