LITY 602 Exploring Literacy through the Visual Arts

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This course is appropriate for K-8 classroom teachers, special needs and ELL teachers, and teachers of science, mathematics and social studies who see literacy as a skill that extends across content areas and wish to investigate how an integrated curriculum with visual art at the core will increase the overall literacy of their students. With the goal of transforming literacy acquisition from learning to read, to reading to learn across all academic content areas, educators will gain a basic understanding of how the brain learns and why a visual art integrated approach can build both the acquisition of literacy skills and the fluency students need to become proficient and advanced learners.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
