This discipline can give visual-spatial learners different ways to access learning.

  • Read More than Words uses the photographs of the Farm Security Administration to explore how we “read” a picture and assign meaning to it. [This lesson is related to the “Rural Voices” lesson under Reading.]
  • Show Me the Money. The Depression made the pursuit of money critical. This lesson explores how money is made and why we assign it value.
  • It’s a Wrap! Flour sacks were used during the Depression to make clothes. This lesson explores how a two-dimensional piece of cloth can become a thre-dimensional sculpture or article of clothing.
  • Contours, Curves & Lines have both historical meaning in the conservation practices that were introduced and in an aethetic sense in this lesson.
