Images can tell stories, convey information and persuade viewers in complex and sophisticated ways. To be literate is about more than being able to read printed text; it is also about closely viewing, deeply understanding, meaningfully engaging with and critically responding to visual texts. The potential of the visual: Teaching literacy with multimodal texts gives teachers the knowledge they need to teach their students to become active, aware and critical viewers.
This multilayered book will help teachers understand visual text construction and raise their knowledge and practice in using the potential of visual, multimodal texts.
