DURHAM, N.H. -- The University of New Hampshire will offer Picturing
Writing: Fostering Literacy Through Art™ at Moharimet Elementary
School in Madbury July 26-27, 2004, and Picture Writing: Research-Based
Integrated Curriculum July 30-31, 2004. These art-and-literature-based
approaches to writing have been proven by research to dramatically
improve student reading and writing.
Elementary school teachers, language arts teachers, reading specialists,
art specialists, and special education teachers are encouraged
to attend. In these workshops, teachers will explore key literary
elements such as sense of setting, mood, sequencing, beginning,
middle, end, plot development, and the use of descriptive language
through a variety of simple crayon resist-based art experiences
and the use of quality picture books.
The workshops begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. The cost is $295 per person,
per workshop. Call Liz Arcieri at (603) 862-3691 or visit www.picturingwriting.org/ for
more information. Registration deadline is July 23, 2004.
