“Pictures are only islands in the sun, the visible tips of remembered experiences and feelings that plunge far below the surface” (Burmark, 2002, p.17).
Visual Literacy: Learn to See, See to Learn by Lynell Burmark is another amazing resource for learning more about visual literacy and effective ways to help your students learn.
Burmark’s proven strategies show how correctly using visuals in the classroom and effectively teaching students how to “read” them can boost student learning.
While these strategies help teach and reach out to all students, they are especially effective for students with learning difficulties and those from poverty and other cultures in ways that other literacy can’t or can’t do as easily (p.3).
