This workshop, designed to accommodate teachers from elementary to secondary levels, models strategies for integrating visual art and writing in alignment with the Common Core. Using artworks from the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection at SFMOMA as the basis for close looking and discussion, participants will engage in activities that address the standards for writing narratives, explanatory texts, and arguments, which can be used in the classroom and the museum.
