The Literacy Shed

The Literacy Shed | Catherine Dobbie -  activities for classrooms | Scoop.it
A website for teachers filled with ideas for literacy teaching using visual resources such as film, animation, photographs and picture books.
Cathy Dobbie's insight:

A colleague in the MTeach program spoke of this in our post professional experience de-brief.
I can see that visual literacy is something that my year six class has not had much exposure to, and look forward to experimenting with it during my upcoming internship. 

It ws discussed that scaffolding is a huge part of this process, and there are some useful notes to assist in this.

This is a great resource for exploring art within the classroom, no need to organise an excursion and worry about risk assessments! After studying The Hero of Little Street by Gregory Rogers last week, I have no doubt that this could be used to link the creative arts to literacy and enrich the learning experience of both.
