We thought it might be fun to learn about what other educators have to say about The Painted Essay. Liv Perry, Librarian, shares her experience below.
"The Painted Essay is the most effective way I have seen to teach children to write. As a school, I think we will see such an improvement in writing because we are all using the same techniques and language. Consistency is the key. Because the Painted Essay uses color to help children understand the organization of expository writing, it will guide them in any writing situation. The color cues help the student not only understand the organizational patterns, but also the “jobs” of each part. I truly think that once children learn the pained essay format, it will free them up to bring out their creative side!"
