Word Portrait Websites

Standard

I work with one of the most awesome technology facilitators in the world and she is always sending our staff super cool websites.  Some of her latest finds have been very art-friendly.  I did a project very similar to this with my 8th graders (when I had 8th graders) but it was a little more hands-on and less “sit back and let the technology do the work.”  But as they say, “Work Smarter, Not Harder.”  This would be a great way to incorporate literacy into your art lessons.  Just think about the possibilities: Verbs!, Similes!, Adjectives!, poems!, Short stories!, spelling words! – All made fun by incorporating ART.  smART, right!?
