Developing Language Via Visual Literacy.
Feeley, Joan T.
Elementary and secondary teachers are recognizing that today's children are products of a visual era who bring visual literacy to their school language learning. Visual resources may be developed and used as a valuable motivational technique. The following programs utilizing this approach are outlined: Dorothy Lopez' development of polaroid picture-taking to stimulate special education children; Debes and William's "pictures first, then words" reading programs for bilingual children; Miriam Offenberg's use of slide-sound productions in visual composition; and Judie Vishonski's inclusion of slide-sound productions, super-8 movie film, and black and white photographs as writing stimuli in her curriculum for seventh-graders.
