Visual Literacy at Work

Opportunity to contribute to the second edition of I See What You Mean:

Stenhouse Publishing is providing an opportunity for educators to share their adventures in visual literacy. See information from their website below and then visit this link if you are interested in participating:

If you are a classroom teacher interested in visual literacy and you are willing to try some new ideas, here is an opportunity to contribute to a new Stenhouse book. Your students’ work could be featured in the second edition of I See What You Mean by Steve Moline!

The new edition of I See What You Mean will investigate these questions:
Do visual texts help us to comprehend what we read?
Do visual texts help us to organize what we write?

You are invited to investigate these questions in your classroom through an activity with students:
1. Read two or more books or websites on a topic.
2. Summarize the information into one visual text. (See examples on the Stenhouse website linked above.)
3. Use this visual text as a “plan” for writing their own account.
