Making sense : writing from objects : a Smithsonian approach by Thomas E Lowderbaugh( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on courses showing teachers how to use many kinds of objects to teach writing and stimulated by ideas from teachers across the country, this booklet contains suggestions for helping students improve their writing. The booklet discusses writing about objects as a process involving the following steps: making observations and gathering data, trying out hypotheses (making guesses) and exploring relationships among ideas, checking to see if the evidence supports the conclusions and if the logical relationships among ideas are clear, asking others to read a draft to check its clarity for readers, incorporating others' suggestions or one's own new ideas into other drafts, and correcting a finished draft.

Collecting their thoughts : using museums as resources for student writing by Jody Marshall( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inviting students to look, explore, and think, this booklet offers practical ways for teachers to use museums--in particular, the artworks, artifacts, collections, and other materials they contain--as a basis for secondary students' writing. If taking students on field trips is not feasible, educators can adapt most of the activities in the booklet for use in the classroom. The key concepts in the booklet are based on the tenet that writing is a skill students can develop through practice, trial, and error. The teacher's role in the activities in the booklet is to guide students through writing, emphasizing process in addition to product. The booklet presents five major activities--Telling a Painting's Story; Conversing with an Object; Explaining How Things Work; Telling Your Story; Creating a Classroom Museum; and Beyond the Museum--as well as advice on how educators can design their own activities. A 15-item annotated list of additional resources is attached. (RS)

Beyond the frame : using art as a basis for interdisciplinary learning by Linda Linnard Andre( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents art appreciation lessons to encourage students to see works of art in two ways, as objects that are interesting in themselves and as objects that spark further exploration. Organized with an introduction and 4 sections subdivided into 8 lessons, each lesson, based on an artwork from the Smithsonian Institution's collection, develops logically out of those works that preceded it. However, lessons also stand alone. A fold-out image is provided for every lesson. Each lesson begins with a close look at the aesthetic qualities of the presented art exemplar and gleans visual clues from this image. Further lesson suggestions include role playing, skits, and discussions or debates of social studies topics. Art production activities are given. Sections and lessons presented include "Section I: What's It All About?" with an accompanying lesson based on the image "Double Portrait of the Artist in Time" (Helen Lundeberg). "Section II: Extending the Frame" offers lessons on images using "First Row Orchestra" (Edward Hopper) and "Modern Painting with Clef" (Roy Lichtenstein). "Section III: "Two Women Who Shaped History" has lessons related to the images of "Rosa Parks" (Marshall D. Rumbaugh) and "Frances Perkins" (William Henry Cotton). Lessons in "Section IV: Objects Honoring Three Men" examine "Painting No. 47, Berlin" (Marsden Hartley); "Ritual Food Serving Vessel (Jing Gui)" (Unknown Chinese Bronze Workers); and "Male Beaded Figure" (Bamum Peoples of Cameroon). The document concludes with acknowledgments and a list of sources. (MM)

Part of your general public is disabled : a handbook for guides in museums, zoos and historic houses by Janice Majewski( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressed to docents, the manual presents general guidelines for making public tours of museums, historic buildings, and zoos more accessible to handicapped persons. Information on eight major disability groups is provided (mental retardation, learning disabilities, hearing impairments, visual handicaps, mobility impairments, cerebral palsy, mental illness, and severe communication disabilities), as well as on sensory and mobility changes that all older adults experience. It is noted that some disabled persons have needs that require the docent to rethink the basic structure of a program or substantially adapt the method of presentation. For each disability, related terminology is defined, emergency procedures noted, and specific suggestions offered for adapting the tour to meet the needs of the handicapping condition. For example, suggestions for adapting a tour for visually handicapped persons explore the following topics: evaluating the accessibility of the facility, introducing oneself, starting with a verbal orientation, offering assistance, speaking clearly and with enthusiasm, choosing an uncluttered route, including touchables in the tour, and using supplemental aids. A resource section presents a chart on epilepsy and how to assist a seizure victim, a list of agencies serving disabled individuals, and a selected bibliography. (Jw)
