CAIRO BOOKS's Description
In The Power of Pictures book and companion DVD, Beth Olshansky introduces
teachers to her innovative art-based approach to literacy instruction. Widely
practiced in classrooms across the country, the model has been proven by
research to improve literacy achievement with a wide range of learners,
especially those who struggle with verbal skills. At the heart of her approach
is the Artists/Writers Workshop. Through study of quality picture books and
hands-on art experiences, students learn to visualize, “paint pictures with
words,” and ultimately create their own extraordinary artistic and literary
work. The book and DVD explain how any teacher can successfully use this
process to enable all students, particularly low performers, to make dramatic
gains in both reading and writing.
