Words & Pictures
Words & Pictures is a project created by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University in collaboration with kindergarten, first-, and second-grade classroom teachers from Durham public schools. It is a collection of high-quality lesson plans that merge fine art and English Language Arts. Common Core lesson plans are paired with works of art from the Nasher Museum’s permanent collection to create lesson plans that help children learn language skills in a more visual way.
Cuberis built Words & Pictures as a tool for teachers to present lesson plans to their students in the classroom. Lesson plans can be searched by subject, grade level and standards. Artwork can be sorted by artist, genre, or collection. The simple design of the site allows the artwork to become the main visual feature.launch site
