Reading Online, v4 n8 Mar 2001
Addresses a "critical" or "reflective" visual literacy. Situates visual representations and their interpretation (the construction of meaning) within a context that raises questions about benefit and power. Explores four main topics: the image as text; analysis and meaning construction; visual literacy as a liberatory practice; and implications for classrooms. Argues visual literacy empowers the individual and her community within a struggle for social justice and democratic practices. (RS)
