Pop-Up Book Making: A Visual Arts and Language Arts Integration By: Mindy J. Kessler Faculty Sponsor: Dr. Cathy Smilan
Research n Integrating visual arts with other subjects facilitates learning and aids cognitive development through sensory stimulation. (Lackey, 2003; Andrzejczak, 2005; (Lackey, 2003; Andrzejczak, 2005; Althouse, 2003; Irwin, Kind, Grauer, & Althouse, 2003; Irwin, Kind, Grauer, & de Cosson, 2005) de Cosson, 2005)
Integration n The integration of visual arts and language arts can help students build their writing and communication skills. (Johnson, 1992)
Sunshine State Standards Visual Arts K-2 n (VA.B.1.1.4) Uses the elements of art and the principles of design to effectively communicate ideas. Language Arts K-2 n (LA.B.1.1.2) Drafts and revises simple sentences and passages, stories, letters, and simple explanations that: express ideas clearly; show an awareness of topic and audience; have a beginning, middle, and ending; effectively use common words; have supporting detail; and are in legible printing.
Visual Arts and Language Arts Similarities n Viewing a piece of artwork encourages spoken or written words. n Reading a story evokes images in one’s mind provoked by the text.
Strategies for Integration n There are many strategies to increase students’ language development by integrating these two subjects. n Bookmaking is one strategy.
Bookmaking: Pop-up Books Effective educational tools n Interactive n Provide prompts or inspirational doorways n Students respond by writing about their observations and interpretations. n Alternative assessment
Benefits to Teachers n Bookmaking persuades students to write thoughts and information prompted from the cuts and folds making the experience memorable. n When students begin creating a book, the desire to fill it up with writing and images encourages them to persevere until they have completed the project.
Assessment n Teacher observation during studio time n Students assess own work n Group critique n Rubric: Assesses students’ ability to satisfy lesson objectives using criteria that determines how well their project demonstrates what they have learned.
Conclusion Value of Bookmaking n Arts integration increases students' knowledge of the visual arts and the language arts. n Increases their intrinsic motivation to learn.
