Visual Literacy With ESOL Art Students

My students need a document camera to see the techniques and methods for sculpture, stitchery, and other art mediums.

My Students

Coming to a new county is a difficult transition; the most difficult part can be the language barrier. This makes "Visual Literacy" even more important.

My school is a Title 1 school.

Many of our students are below the poverty line and many do not speak English as a first language. This makes visual demonstration even more important in my classroom. My students rely more on visual communication and understanding than verbal instruction alone.

My Project

Imagine learning how to weave, stitch, use clay, or draw from watching a large scale video on the wall. That is what my students need. This is possible with the document camera I am asking for. I teach art on a cart which means I travel to the classrooms with all necessary materials. Managing a room and finding good spaces to demonstrations is often impossible. This is just another reason I am asking for this document camera to project a live video of my demonstrations enlarged on the board or wall.

Having a document camera to demonstrate art methods effectively will increase the understanding of techniques to our students.

Using language is important but since many of my students are English language learners, they rely heavily on visual demonstrations.
