Norman Rockwell Illustrated Narratives and QR codes
Fifth Grade students investigated the narrative style of the work of Norman Rockwell. In small groups they worked to "read" select illustrations to determine the messages that were being portrayed. They were particularly sensitive to details that help to establish time periods and lifestyle clues. Individually they created their own narrative over the course of several class periods. Once the illustration was completed, they took their work to the Language Arts teacher where they wrote an accompanying narrative for the illustration.
As a part of a full school show off night, work was exhibited with QR codes to link the illustrations to the written work. In the classroom, the written narratives also contained QR codes that linked back to the illustrations. This was established as a cooperative work between the Art room and classroom teachers.
