AbstractThis project has two parts. The first part reviews research that shows art as a successful method for teaching writing in the elementary school classroom. It stresses the importance of students creating art before writing a piece of fiction or poetry. Part one covers the theories behind the writing through art process as well as telling success stories of teachers who have implemented art in their writing lessons. Part two is a lesson plan unit that applies the writing through art process when teaching fiction to third grade students. The lesson unit engages students to first create in Art Workshops and then write in Writer Workshops. The students will explore character, setting, plot and dialogue through art and then develop these short story elements in written form.
