A Closer Look at Visual Literacy, Year Two: High School Teacher Experiences On How Visual Literacy Impacts Learning

Project #260

Lois Keller Jacqueline Helman Karon Guttormson

Summary:

This project builds on the inquiry of a completed action research project by refining the original investigation: How does increasing visual literacy instruction within secondary classrooms increase engagement in learning? This project addresses the gap in digital and visual literacy skills expected for students in grades 9-12 in content areas and beyond school contexts but rarely taught or supported explicitly.
