Considering Visual Text Complexity: A Guide for Teachers
Cappello, Marva
Reading Teacher, v70 n6 p733-739 May-Jun 2017
Twenty-first century literacy requires students to analyze and create images for communication across and within academic disciplines. Thus, literacy teachers are now responsible for supporting students as they engage with visual texts. We must carefully and intentionally choose images for teaching practice and consider the reader, instructional task, and visual text complexity. This teaching tip offers support for teachers making decisions about what images to embed in their practice and includes a scale to illuminate visual text complexity based on the qualitative criteria outlined in the Common Core State Standards.
