Reading Is Seeing: Using Visual Response to Improve the Literary Reading of Reluctant Readers.
Wilhelm, Jeffrey D.
Journal of Reading Behavior, v27 n4 p467-503 Dec 1995
Compares responses of two highly reluctant learning-disabled readers before and after they were helped to visualize story situations through visual art. Shows that visual art helped the readers to begin enjoying reading, and to begin evoking and manipulating story worlds in their minds. Notes that the students began to participate in the classroom community through their artwork. (RS)
