Get the Picture: Visual Literacy in Content-Area Instruction

Literacy learning is no longer limited to reading, writing, listening, and speaking; we must include visual communication and expand our definition of what it means to be literate.

This professional development workshop will provide teachers with new and engaging strategies to help students learn how to analyze and create through visual communication.

Based on practical research, this workshop offers concrete tools and techniques and a wide range of suggested visual texts to effectively use in the classroom from primary sources, to digital media and the visual-heavy world of 21st century learning.

Attendees will:

  • Examine ways to incorporate visual texts into instruction, including what visual literacy lessons look like in the primary grades
  • Practice instructional strategies and develop sample lessons for teaching students to read visual texts for understanding
  • Practice and discover instructional strategies for guiding students to visually illustrate understanding, specifically targeting support for improving reading and writing
