Visual Thinking Strategies
Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) is a
student-centered curriculum in which the
student examines and discusses works
of art, prompted by questions selected to
support careful, evidentiary looking.
VTS questions are:
1. What is going on in this picture?
2. What do you see that makes you say
that?
3. What more can we find?

Visual Thinking Strategies
Students are asked to:
Danny Lyons
•
Look carefully at works of art
•
Talk about what they observe
•
Back up their ideas with
evidence
•
Listen to and consider the
views of others
•
Discuss many possible
interpretations
Visual Thinking Strategies and the Common
Core State Standards
One of the major shifts in the Common
Core State Standards for English
Language Arts demands that students
"produce and use evidence in a text to
justify their views" (Santos, DarlingHammond & Cheuk, 2012).
By using the VTS method on a regular
basis, teachers can develop evidencebased reasoning habits in their
students.

a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse
partners, building on other’s ideas and expressing their own
clearly and persuasively.
Anchor Standard 2: Integrate and evaluate information

Anchor Standard 3: Evaluate a speaker’s point of view,
reasoning, and use of evidence and rhetoric.
Anchor Standard 4: Present information, findings, and
supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of
reasoning and the organization, development, and style are
appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

Visual Thinking Strategies and
English Language Learners
The CCSS guidelines for working with
English Language Learners explicitly states
that teachers should:
Harold Eugene Edgerton
•
Provide opportunities for ELLs to
interact with proficient English speakers
•
Provide opportunities for classroom
interactions (both listening and
speaking) that develop concepts and
academic language in the disciplines.
•
Provide opportunities for ELLs to build
on their strengths, prior experiences,
and background knowledge.
