Today's students live in an increasingly visual world where they are engaged not only by words, but also by images. This collection of innovative articles shows classroom teachers and literacy specialists how to use students' interest in picture books, comics, graphic novels, film, anime, and other visual media to motivate and engage readers in Grades K–12.
Teaching Visual Literacy offers background information, research, practical ideas, and sample lessons to help educators:

  • Capture the attention of learners and boost their critical thinking skills
  • Support and strengthen multiple competencies in literacy
  • Help students comprehend and assess visual information
  • Reach students with disabilities and extend their understanding

Visual literacy is an integral part of literacy development, and this much-needed classroom companion helps teachers engage students as critical readers and prepare them for living in the twenty-first century.
