Seglem, Robyn; Witte, Shelbie
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v53 n3 p216-226 Nov 2009
Expanding the definition of literacy and using visual strategies comprehensively can strongly affect student learning. Educators can contribute to the growth and understanding of the world of nonprint text by helping students learn to read and create visual products critically. When educators bridge popular culture and traditional texts, students become authentically motivated and engaged in their learning. This article highlights vignettes of visual literacy at work through successful classroom practices. (Contains 5 figures.)
