Teaching Persuasive Writing through Art-Education Closet

Teaching Persuasive Writing through Art-Education Closet | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

by Susan Riley

 

"Our main focal point for this lesson lands with the artwork of Norman Rockwell.  I started to piece this lesson together from a couple of different source inspirations.  The first was as I was working on our upcoming STEAM Ed app (more coming on this exciting project in the next few weeks) and putting in our aligned standards to the Common Core.  As soon as I saw this one, I knew I wanted to write a lesson seed for it to put up on EducationCloset.  The second was as I was reading this fascinating article: Norman Rockwell shares 8 marketing lessons from art and advertising.  It truly got me thinking about how art can be used to persuade people and more importantly, how it persuades people.  When you see an advertisement, you are truly reading a persuasive writing piece – the writing is just being represented through the visual art.  In essence, a print ad is an arts integration idea come to life.  Our minds feast on the visual representation of an idea, which persuades us to find out more information about that product or thought.  And today, we’re passing this lesson seed on to you.  And keep an eye on our lesson page – we’re preparing to launch an updated look to make finding and downloading the right lesson seed for you easier than ever."

Handig app om dingen die je op het web tegenkomt van aantekeningen te voorzien en te bewaren.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, October 20, 2013 7:54 PM

I haven't read this article but I'm seriously interested in the question implied in the title.....i.e. how to 'mark up' information and get them on the web.  In many cases, I think that's adequate for most people's purpose.

 

I have yet to find a tool that I found really comfortable for doing that.  Maybe this is it.

How interactive technology is transforming storytelling - The Guardian

How interactive technology is transforming storytelling - The Guardian | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Let me begin by saying: reports of the death of the book are wildly exaggerated. Likewise traditional storytelling. Human beings have been telling stories around campfires since the first cavewoman struck a flint against another flint and noticed that an interesting spark flew off. Stories aren't going anywhere and nor is the visceral, inexplicable, bone-deep shivery delight of a good tale well told.

 

What happens, however, is that new technologies give creative people new ideas. Art and science (or technology) are often imagined to be totally separate – but this is not, and never has been, true. Art is affected by the technology of art, because artists love to experiment, and every new development is a new tool

All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?

 

As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards. Recently, a number of similar social curation sites developed specifically for students and teachers have popped up, emulating Pinterest in key ways while focusing on learning. In some cases, they have even made improvements.

 

Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"
