Language Through Art: Adult ESL Lesson Workshops

Screenshot
For teachers of adult English Language Learners (ELLs), the J. Paul Getty Museum offers this collection of lesson plans designed to teach English vocabulary and language skills through art. These lesson plans were originally part of a workshop series at the Getty. Instructors can browse these lesson plans by level: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Each lesson centers on an item (or a number of items) on display at the Getty. For example, the beginning lesson, "Work", allows students to examine Lewis Hine's photograph Empire State Building and Louis-Leopold Boilly's Three Young Artists in a Studio and write sentences based on these works. In the series of advanced lessons, students look at a variety of portraits and write an imagined interview with the subject of one of these portraits. Each lesson is accompanied by student handouts and digital images of featured artwork. While these are designed specifically for adult English Language Learners, many of these lessons could also be used in K-12 art or language arts classrooms.
