Visual Thinking Strategies gives an amazing way to implement skills for observation towards critical thinking as well as giving skills to enhance students social and communication skills. VTS gives students a way to use language in a critical way. Using VTS is a way to teach students how to apply the skills to daily content areas. For example, giving students the ability to observe, question and give a conclusion / proof is the same way you look at science, social studies, math.
I never heard of VTS until reviewing this section on this class. I find it helpful and empowering learning how we can use art to give strategies to students. When viewing the video and articles I thought of ways I will be using such strategies.
I also found the following link helpful for me to teach VTS in my classroom and to use in my lessons for all content areas.
