Mrs. Villafaña from Arleta CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Integrating Visual Art to Learn History-Social Science

Help me give my students art supplies, including colored pencils, glue, and markers to enhance their various learning styles that include making their notebooks visually interesting by including political cartoons, and color coding their notes for emphasis.

My Students

Since the opening of the school in 2006, we have grown as a community all with the goal of supporting these young people to live to their fullest potential, including a post-secondary plan.

Our students are the pride and joy of the community.

Faced with adversity these students are resilient and move forward to not only improve their lives but those around them too. They continue to makes us proud by continuing their education, serving our country, and giving back.

My Project

My students have diverse learning styles, and most with an emphasis on visual learning. Integrating color, and visuals into the curriculum helps students learn the content and express their creativity as well. Using political cartoons, graphs, maps, charts, and infographics, help students retain information and make connections between concepts too. Students will cut out political cartoons and glue them into their notebooks and analyze and interpret the cartoon.

Using color pencils and markers to put emphasis on their notes leads to students critically thinking about the events and concepts.

Another activity, I often implement is placing students into groups to brainstorm answers to a question on a large poster paper or make a concept map on a topic, such as how a bill becomes a law, or the concept of checks and balances. High school students like drawing and coloring too!
