Teaching Approaches

All of the Power of Pictures teaching sequences are aimed at developing an appreciation of art and picturebooks across age ranges. The sequences will have a strong emphasis on spending time exploring and responding to illustrations, drawing and illustrating as part of the writing process and will culminate in a bookmaking activity to exemplify the process of bookmaking and allow children to see themselves as authors. The work done in the sequences could be enhanced by having an author/illustrator work alongside children at some stage of the process.
