"Teaching Visual Literacy: Aperture On Sight"

Alice Proujansky (T&L)

Saturday, March 07 - 11:00AM to 11:45AM
Plaza I

The Aperture On Sight curriculum relies on the equation: form + content + context = meaning as a framework for teaching visual literacy through photography and photobook making. This talk will illustrate ways to decode and encode images, interpreting photographs using flexible, engaging inquiry techniques that make material accessible to middle and high school students.

Participants will consider the ways that images communicate, how students can infuse their own photographs with meaning, and ways to move beyond lectures toward truly thoughtful interpretative conversations that encourage students to make personal connections with visual imagery.
