Contextual Worlds of Child Art: Experiencing Multiple Literacies through Images
Binder, Marni
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v12 n4 p367-380 2011
This article draws from a larger study that examines the multiple literacies inherent in children's drawings. The author discusses a qualitative research project conducted with a split grade one and two classroom in Toronto, Canada. She argues that pictorial images can be read as a form of literacy, where thought is made public through visual narratives. The author's prime focus was to interpret the children's artwork as communication on a par with other semiotic modes and to explore the images as an important vehicle for teaching and learning. (Contains 4 figures.)
