Beginning a College Program: Assisting Teachers to Develop Visual Literacy Approaches in Public School Classrooms.
Gohring, Ralph J.
This paper documents the development and implementation of a graduate class in education titled "Visual Literacy and the Film Image in Education." The class is the focal point of what will be a continuing effort in the College of Education at the University of Texas at Austin to facilitate the development of visual literacy skills in teachers and future teachers. The class attempts to develop the desire and ability of participants to plan and actually use visual literacy approaches in their work with students. The class also attempts to foster the development of research on topics related to the emerging field of visual literacy. The majority of participants in the class are teachers-in-service or full-time graduate students. (Author)
