Course Description

New Workshop!

With the current emphasis on a more integrated literacy curriculum that includes listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and representing, there is a need to revisit and refresh our understandings of the significance of visuals in literacy. The purpose of looking at this aspect of literacy with new eyes is to reconsider how to better teach the competencies that help students think with, think about, and think beyond the images that accompany text. This workshop offers teachers an alternative path to teach comprehension by focusing on intentional, explicit, and differentiated instruction to scaffold and guide students to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand how visual images are part of the meaning making process.  With less emphasis on “digital literacies”, topics for this workshop include reading images in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, using infographics and visuals in writing to enhance meaning, and using images to enrich the development of vocabulary.
