Using Images as a Literacy Tool

The visual nature of our culture is increasing and as such our students are more and more surrounded in a world of images. Visual thinking routines will expand students’ ability to understand visuals as a language and to use this language to enhance communication. Differentiate learning for student success by allowing students to explore and document thinking in multiple ways. The key elements of visual literacy can be a valuable tool across subject areas, cultural perspectives and in meeting the English language arts outcomes of viewing and representing.

Participants will:

  • Experience a number of tools which can support visual literacy.
  • Understand the different components that make up constructing meaning when reading and creating images.
  • Leave with resources that can be immediately integrated in the classroom.

Audience: Grades 3-8 educators
