Category Description for Teaching English Through Art:

Incorporating art into English - particularly writing - can be both a motivational tool and useful for increasing a student's understanding and retention. Teaching English Through Art provides solid coverage of all aspects of writing for middle schoolers - parts of sentences, kinds of sentences, sentence structure, paragraph structure, types of paragraphs, story-writing, dialogue, literary devises, creating mood, letters, poetry, and biographical sketches. Rather than detailed instruction in each of these areas, art examples are provided that illustrate or stage a situation and the student is encouraged to expand from the example into original composition. Take for instance, the lesson on caricature. Visually, as an art example, we're familiar with this type of cartoon-like drawing of a person's face. However, a character in a story can be a caricature as well, exhibiting an extreme of personality or behavior. While people with exaggerated personality traits exist in real life, it's in writing that they're most prevalent, and learning to identify caricatures as well as produce them can be a valuable skill.

The author, Sharon Jeffus, is both an art instructor and a former English teacher. The student is expected to compile a Writing Portfolio based on suggestions/assignments from the course. Coverage is broad in terms of writing, covering all the essential strands of writing plus a smattering of mechanics. This 90 page course could be used as the writing component of an English/Language Art course or it could be used as a once a week or occasional supplement to your traditional program. It would be a good break from a traditional program and could be used with several children at one time. ~ Janice

Teaching English can seem boring for some students, but if you incorporate music, the arts, or any other subject the students like, it's easier to keep students' attention.

Would this be a good option for summer grammar review? Looking for an independent resource that my soon to be 7th grader could do on his own.
A shopper on May 11, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Students are creating a portfolio. A 7th grader would likely enjoy this as a summer project. The grammar included is in the context of their creativeness. While they are certainly using and thinking about grammar concepts, it is not really a review of learning grammar. For a student who is already good at grammar, yes, it would be a nice summer application of those skills.

Purchase this set for art for summer. Also helps with English, math,and Science. We will continue using them through out the school year. Doesn't take the place of English, math, and Science curriculum.
