This session demonstrates how K–12 special-needs teachers can develop oral academic vocabulary in English through scaffolded, engaging discussions of fine art images from around the globe and across time. Teachers will gain strategies on how to support academic language through discussions that are based on images, rather than on text. Practical handouts are provided, including sample lessons with accompanying fine art images and concrete academic talk strategies.
