Macmillan Education has partnered with the National Gallery of Victoria to create this unique series aimed at using the power of art to develop skills in:
• critical thinking
• creative writing
• close reading
• visual literacy
• literary techniques
• vocabulary development.
Catering for students of all abilities and learning styles, Inspired English is designed to help you meet the demands of the Australian Curriculum as well as enrich your students’ experience in the English classroom.
The full colour workbooks enable students to record vocabulary development and their own critical analyses, and offer scaffolds for the drafting of productive tasks which can then be used for assessment.
The teacher books provide:
• contextual information
• a rationale and guidance for teaching English using visual media
• comprehensive lesson plans and activities.
Written by Susie May and Purnima Ruanglertbutr, who both deliver 'English as Art' visual literacy workshops to thousands of students at the NGV each year, the lesson plans are based on tried and tested techniques.
This series will give you everything you need to put these fabulous images to use in your English classroom and harness the power of great art to truly inspire your students.
