Creating Images to Understand Visual Literacy
Palmquist, Nancy N.
Knowledge Quest, v36 n3 p20-23 Jan-Feb 2008
As the keeper of the library's fun tools, the author was one of the school's original digital photographers. She was hooked on the ease of digital photography after using it one summer and realized its value--first personally, then professionally. Thus it seemed natural for her to develop a digital photography class to address visual literacy, giving interested students an opportunity to create images of their own. Students step behind the wizard's curtain to see how the "magic" is done. In this article, the author describes how she teaches motivated students about visual literacy as they take photographs with a digital camera and edit them in Photoshop.
