Spellodrome Visual Literacy Package.

Visual Literacy is now considered an important element in the instruction of English to students of all ages. When teaching English, teachers need to consider visual literacy and multi modal texts in their lessons.

With the Visual Literacy package, we have created units of work which meet these requirements. We have addressed the comprehending and composing of texts with visual knowledge, whilst also supporting word, text and grammar knowledge.

The outcomes from these three units of work are:
1. To promote discussion and critical thinking in relation to visual images.
2. To teach students how to make meaning from visual images.
3. To enhance students’ verbal and written literacy skills through discussion and written responses.
