Create original content with your students for the Page, Stage & Screen by writing to be read, speaking to be heard and representing to be seen. There's a world of difference between creating for an audience and doing assignments for a grade. It's way more joyful to create written, spoken & visual stories with purpose for authentic audiences. So, adopt a Maker Mindset and design learning experiences with students that follow the creative journey from Imagination through Creation to Exhibition!
You can build #VisualLiteracy and #CreativeConfidence by practicing the habits of creators with your students to make print, visual, live, media and physical creations that you are proud of! For a little inspiration, start by listening to first-grader, Brookleyn, as she shares about what it means to be a maker.
Making learning visible means fostering creative confidence in your students through the three acts of the creative process: Imagine, Create & Exhibit. With a purposeful Maker Mindset, create high quality, original text, images and designs with your students and share them with real audiences.
