look to learn
look to learn is a tested, classroom-based program, especially for elementary students. it uses visual thinking strategies (vts) for developing language arts and critical thinking skills through viewing, discussing, and writing about works of art from museums around the world, including the david owsley museum of art in muncie, indiana.

the program improves critical thinking and language arts core competencies.
every month, students and teacher leaders talk about three works of art, using a simple structured method to facilitate open-ended discussions.
