Monday, April 22, 2013Visual Literacy & the Common Core Standards
How can learning to “read” the visual images we see in news reports and advertisements result in critical thought and media literacy for our students, and how does this type of literacy relate to the Common Core State Standards? In this one day workshop on June 20, we will examine how technology has changed the creation of visual images in news and ads and what that effect has been on our students. Learn how to help students decipher the messages implicit in visual images while developing lessons that align to Common Core.
