Infographics are a great way to caputre the core information that you are wanting to share. A visual and dynamic way to present and create.

Love the idea of the one off lessons assessment these worksheets enable. With some adaptation for a primary school I will use these for the purpose stated in the discourse of her blog post.

Tips for Teaching Visual Literacy for the Common Core > Eye On Education

Tips for Teaching Visual Literacy for the Common Core > Eye On Education | Literacy for all | Scoop.it

The following blog post is part of a blog series called "Comments on the Common Core," written by Eye On Education's Senior Editor, Lauren Davis. When teaching reading, we can’t overlook visuals. We should show students how to read illustrations, photos, and charts, not just text. It’s easy for students to gloss over the bar graphs and pictures in an article and think of them as decoration. We need to show students how to understand those visuals and integrate the ideas presented with the ideas in the text. We can also have students read photographs and paintings and compare them to literary or informational texts on the same topic. Our world is filled with a rich variety of cultural, historical, and informational visuals, and we need to teach students how to understand (and hopefully appreciate) them.

Anni Tokatlian's insight:

Definitely a necessity in the 21st century. It is essential, however, in this fast-paced world that we allow students the time to absorb this learning and put their insights into practice.

Anni Tokatlian's insight:

Agnes Nieuwenhuizen gets straight to the point about the negative impact of study overkill when reading texts in school settings. She suggests promotion of the joy of reading is achieved simply by reading for the joy of it. Reflect on the art in the literature rather than focussing only on the themes.
