Reading Skills & Descriptive/Critical Response Document

Alignment between Descriptive Review/Critical Response Protocols and reading skills.

Critical Response & Descriptive Review Documents

For more information regarding Critical Response and Descriptive Review protocols, please see the above link. At this location, you can download and print these documents.

The Value of Starting with Respond Protocols BEFORE Making Art

Here is a clip that shows Alston, a student applying the use of Critical Response to the "chicken" painting at the Weisman Art Museum. If you view this clip you will see the transformative learning that happens when we build in inquiry-based learning strategies to culturally relevant curriculum and grant sessions. See the clip here. Additional information about how this work can be included within artful writing is located here. In regards to the MN Academic Standards related to this content, it does not require students to make art. It asks them to respond. Critical Response holds great value in allowing the space for students to more deeply investigate works art and has merit as a form of study PRIOR to any creating of art that might be connected to a variety of cultures.
