I love this vocab approach - I just put up "vessel" as
one of my art terms. I think I'll have them do this
illustration to see what all their getting as the year
I just remembered a literacy strategy. It's called a
double entry quote. I think it would be awesome bell
ringer work, but I think it may be a little more
geared to high school. Proabaly - it depends on the
sophistacation of the quote.
Students fold their paper in half (hot dog)and record
a quote on one side of the paper. On the other side
they write how they interpret it or what it means.
