In today's world images are everywhere and if a picture is worth 1000 words, then developing visual literacy skills in today's classroom is key to success. The ability to make meaning from images, graphics and video needs to be directly taught and positively impacts reading and writing skills. Some students have an easier time accessing and learning comprehension skills through visual methods and then can apply those newly learned skills when tackling text.
This workshop is open to teachers in New York City only, as it is funded by Title IIA. Administrators, paraprofessionals, and P3 providers welcome.
