Schappelle, Laura Scott
MetadataShow full item record
This Action Research study focused on the use of storytelling as a means of critically analyzing a work of art. The participants in this study were elementary students in the Fifth Grade. The participants wrote a story and verbally told a story in response to looking at a work of art. The researcher then compared the written and oral forms of communication to determine which yielded better results in terms of producing an effective art criticism. These responses will be compared to Feldman's Model, a popular approach of art criticism. The primary goal of the study was to see whether storytelling would prove to be an effective format for an art criticism. The secondary goal of this study was to analyze the difference between written and verbal forms of communication.
