Fall 2010 Meeting_UC Merced Writing Project

Art & Vocabulary with English Language Learners by Maria Munoz

1. Read articles on famous artists

2. Key words

3. View picture- create one sentence looking at the picture.

4. Using visuals in your writing

What the experts say: “Writing exercises that draw upon visual art as a starting occasion have the potential to make students more sensitive to the visual arrangements of words and the imagistic capacities of language” – Lee Upton.

5. Adding words to the picture (descriptive language) – adjectives/ adverbs/ prepositional phrases

6. Return to sentence to revise using more descriptive language choices.
