A Multidisciplinary Approach to Literacy through Picture Books and Drama
Burke, Anne; Peterson, Shelley Stagg
English Journal, v96 n3 p74-79 Jan 2007
Anne Burke and Shelley Stagg Peterson argue that "picture books offer a medium for teaching visual and critical literacy across the curriculum." To support this idea, they describe a multidisciplinary unit on World War II that pushes high school students to utilize visual and print literacies to analyze, comprehend, and relate to public events and private struggles from history.
