Blending the Writer's Workshop model with the concept of visual literacy creates a new approach of Artists'/Writers' Workshop, identifying and acknowledging the balance of the two components of this approach. Students will be guided through the process using the mini-lesson format to encourage growth through guidance and introduction and mastery of standard English conventions. Additionally, mini-lessons will include visual literacy strategies of reading a picture, responding to a written text, and stepping into the picture. The addition in the schedule of field trips to museums is measurably enriching as students experience first hand the wonderfulness of great art. In contrast, simple walking trips in the neighborhood or around the school grounds to draw and sketch their own views of the world are equally important. Building experiences will build vocabulary begin to use in their language and ultimately their writing.
