Analyzing Arts, Criticizing Culture: Writing Reviews
December 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Book reports and literary essays have long been staples of language arts classrooms, but our curriculum unit on writing reviews encourages students to learn how to critique art in other genres as well. Beginning with our informal writing prompts and culminating in our review contest, we encourage students to post their work for a global audience of both teenagers and adults to read. For the contest, students are asked to review a book, movie, restaurant, album, theatrical production, video game, dance, TV show, art exhibition or any other kind of work The Times critiques.
In this webinar, The Learning Network, along with expert educators, will walk through how to use writing prompts and mentor texts from the work of Times critics to help students understand the elements of a successful review, and write one for our contest.
