Did you know that viewing artworks is a wonderful and an efficient way to teach numerous reading comprehension skills? It doesn’t have to be a long viewing session. In as little as ten quick minutes, you can begin to help your students to learn to identify key details, synthesize those details into meaning, make inferences, think about themes or big ideas and make meaningful text-to connections.
