In an increasingly complex world, students are bombarded with information in the form of visual texts or devices
such as graphs, charts, and maps. Visual literacy or the ability to analyze and interpret these types of texts
is critical to students' success as they transition from the classroom to the real world.
Visual Devices feature seventeen different types of visual texts. Step-by-step guided
instruction, colorful and engaging examples, and opportunities for independent student work will
enable students to master visual literacy for life.
How to Use Visual Devices is a handy reference tool that explains the easy
three-step process to teach all the Visual Devices lessons.
Use an engaging model to introduce and define the featured visual text and identify its basic components.
Guide students through analyzing and applying the visual text's features as the class
collaborates on building a version of the text with step-by-step teacher-led instructions.
GIve students the opportunity to apply what they have learned to independent creation of a visual
text, either on their own or as a group.
