In this video Steve Moline presents the basics of visual literacy and its place in the curriculum, illustrating his points with classroom sequences with students and workshop sessions with teachers. Viewers will learn:
- how reading for "story" differs from reading for information;
- why the visual element is such a central part of complete literacy;
- how to help students select the best form of visual text to incorporate in their writing;
- how to integrate visual and verbal texts;
- how to select the right visual device to communicate your ideas and information;
- how to use details of graphic design to organize and support meaning.
In What Is Visual Literacy? teachers, curriculum supervisors, and inservice directors have the basis for a workshop or discussion group on this critical topic that teachers in all parts of the curriculum increasingly want to know about.
