Slightly overblown tone, presumably to help what is a useful overview of infographics sound more "academic" - read between the lines for what students should think through and how they should approach their own infographic production

Visualizing is a powerful multisensory technique.

rwestby's insight:

As a new teacher, I was thrilled to find content that was saved, or curated, for me to pull from. And the visuals are a nice way to hook an audience.
