Words with Pictures: The Role of Visual Literacy in Writing and Its Implication for Schooling.
Millard, E.; Marsh, J.
Reading, v35 n2 p54-61 Jul 2001
Finds the current emphasis on technical accuracy and neatness in handwriting limits the role of drawing in children's construction of text. Suggests this has adverse consequences for development of pupil confidence, particularly in boys. Argues that teachers need to be more understanding of differences in the modes in which pupils choose to make sense of their social and cultural contexts. (RS)
