        Art of Comprehension

        An art teacher, a fourth grade teacher and a fifth grade teacher teamed up at Elms Elementary School in Jackson Township, NJ when they realized that the cognitive processes involved in reading comprehension were almost identical to those involved in pictorial comprehension. They developed a program called the Art of Comprehension, which integrates visual anaylsis into lessons across the curriculum. The program aims to increase students' critical thinking skills and make art more accessible and understandable. Early data also suggests that the program is increasing students‘ standardized test scores.
