Visual Literacy Yearbook.
Montebello Unified School District, CA.
This yearbook describes the program undertaken by the Montebello, California Unified School District to assist children's development in the area of language arts by giving them the opportunity to use cameras to record their visual experience and by then using the resulting pictures, slides and films as the basis of language arts experiences. It explains the logic underlying the program by showing that by so doing children, particularly those who are not yet engaged in learning, begin to discriminate and interpret the visual actions, objects and symbols they encounter in their own environments and thereby acquire an intrinsic, self-oriented motivation to develop the creative language arts competencies needed to comprehend and enjoy these experiences and to communicate them to others. Brief accounts of 17 specific visual learning experiences are included, along with many representative samples of the pictures taken by the students themselves. A short selected bibliography is listed at the conclusion of the report. (PB)
