Drawing Stories, Writing Pictures: Creating Meaning in Story Weaving Studio
Prisca and Ray Martens both teach at Towson University and have collaborated with teachers for several years, exploring how to help students read the art in picturebooks, as well as the written text, to construct meaning. In this presentation, they and several teachers share their work with students in Story Weaving Studio. Story Weaving Studio, while similar to writing workshop, has a distinct focus on supporting students’ composing and weaving meanings together in writing and art. Minilessons explore art concepts and artists’ thinking and decision making in addition to that of authors. Teachers conference with students about their composing in both symbol systems. Prisca, Ray, and the teachers look forward to sharing the students’ amazing work!
