This guide is intended to help language learners communicate more effectively. Through encounters with art at the University of Michigan Museum of Art, learners of all ages will increase their speaking, listening, reading, and writing ability.
Teachers and docents find that writing with art is an exciting, productive activity. Writing Tours are offered to school groups and can be adapted to fit any grade level. The Write for Understanding Tour Overview includes potential stops, background information, and images. The featured writing activities could be performed in the gallery or in the classroom and include printable handouts that can be springboards to writing for many purposes.
