My students need access to Scholastic ART Magazine and its supplemental material to give them (45 to a class) exposure to content vocabulary and complex text.
Do you remember that first piece of artwork you couldn't take your eyes off of? Do you remember how it inspired you? Imagine if that moment had never happened. Please help my students find that moment of clarity and inspiration through the arts.
The majority of our school population is not often exposed to the arts and/or art history.
Many are considered underprivileged, homeless, or are in some other way challenged by their living conditions or family problems. The arts can offer an outlet of self-expression our students do not always have available in other subject areas.
The art they usually see is on bodies in the forms of tattoos or on the walls as graffiti. They have museums close by but many have never been.
Last year was a difficult time for our school, but we are moving forward with a positive attitude in this new year.
In previous years, I was unable to use this magazine with my students because of the cost. My hope is that with your donation, we can make use of the wonderful resources attached to this magazine.
My students need access to Scholastic ART Magazine and its supplemental material to give them (45 to a class) exposure to content vocabulary and complex text. The magazine supports Common Core instruction by exposing the students to content vocabulary and complex text. It takes the students to a different time in history by exploring art through the years and the different artists and where and when they lived.
There is an on-line component that allows the students to extend their learning through technology and to make choices about the art that is of the highest interest to that individual student.
I believe strongly that learning is interconnected.
When I teach art, I teach everything. By using this magazine in their art class, it will support instruction in all areas of study.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
