MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this investigation was to learn the art-based strategies developed by educator Beth Olshansky and perceive how they might be adapted for museum-based teaching. The research was comprised of two parts of data collection. The first was a case study, which included an in-depth document analysis regarding Olshansky’s publications, observation at Olshansky’s Picturing Writing professional development workshop, and a semi-structured interview with Olshansky. The second part was practitioner research, which consisted of a pilot study at the Blanton Museum of Art and a questionnaire completed by participants of the pilot study. This research is intended to encourage educators to utilize art to teach literacy, and provides ideas for how to accomplish this.
