An Investigation of Visual Syntax Among Children of Different Grade Levels.
Clement, Joseph David
To explore methods of visual communication as a supplement to bilingual education, 200 white male subjects were selected from a public school system in South Florida (100 from the first grade and 100 from the eighth grade) and were allowed to create visual statements from a standardized set of photos. Using primarily Latent Partition Analysis, the resultant visual statements were analyzed. The results indicated the existence of what might be termed a "visual syntax." The data further suggest that this "visual syntax" is relatively stable over students of the two grade levels. Implications of these and other findings, along with suggestions for future research, are also discussed. A description of Latent Partition Analysis is appended. (Author/SK)
