How to Use This Resource

This resource is divided into three main components. The first, Looking at Art, is intended to help teachers and students develop skills for working with art objects. The objects are drawn from the Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection and feature artworks from the Indian subcontinent, China and Japan. The second component includes model lesson plans to help teachers and students apply visual literacy skills to multiple classroom literacies. Each lesson is based on one or more artworks. These lessons are suggested strategies and meant as a springboard for elementary school teachers to develop future lesson. These can be adjusted for other grade levels. The third component is a collection of other useful resources, such as maps, bibliography, links and more.
