A Prospective Curriculum Using Visual Literacy.
Hortin, John A.
This report describes the uses of visual literacy programs in the schools and outlines four categories for incorporating training in visual thinking into school curriculums as part of the back to basics movement in education. The report recommends that curriculum writers include materials pertaining to: (1) reading visual language and understanding visual elements, (2) controlling our lives through images, (3) creating and designing visual information, and (4) thinking visually. Examples of how each of these given areas can be incorporated into a curriculum are given, as are techniques for teachers to provide this approach in their classrooms. Thirty-five references are listed. (Author/MER)
