Bringing Braille Literacy to Art with Shoe Design


I love our new library gal! She has immersed herself in the Expanded Core and has a ton of fun ideas for integrating it in meaningful ways. She had our transition class work their ECC skills with the Vans Custom Culture Contest. How fun?!

Because literacy makes it's mark in many ways - we ventured down the road of Art & Design in our Library Class. Together, the class conceptualized and designed four pairs of shoes for VANS Custom Culture contest. Each detail, theme, and material was discussed until a clear end product was brought to the table. Our library curriculum specialist helped execute the plan.  All four shoes are awaiting review to hopefully move on to the next round. Each student brought specific ideas to the table, and their outcome is fantastic--  from Braille on shoes to SW Local flavour - each is super unique.

I wanted to share this because I thought it was a great and super relevant way to relate the ECC for our transition age students. There were so many connections to different ECC skill areas with working on this contest. Plus, our shoes are on display at our school for everyone to see and to feel. Looks like the ECC is pretty fashionable, too!
