Turning the English Classroom into a Museum. Presentation

Thanks to Kimberly Marie Cicciariello, we had the oportunity of learning new painting techniques as well as improving our learning of American painters.
We´d like to share with you her presentation, that involves our work and her great collaboration. It also summarizes the projects we were dealing with along this school year in relation to our Plurilingual Project " Society and Nature in Art through English Language and Literature", the Library Project "Reading in Art", the Project related to "The Classics in Literature" and "The European Portfolio of the Languages".
As you can see, we had integrated Art and English Language following a CLIL Approach. Besides, we had the collaboration of the English Language, Art and Assistant teachers, since we have one hour for coordination and we cooperate one another.
