Seeing through the Common Core
visual literacy and 21st century skills
Boost recall 42%? Increase application of learning 89%? In this engaging multimedia session, we hand you the magnifying glass to focus on how the visual strands of Common Core can do exactly that. Citing powerful research and referencing specific standards, we demonstrate how visual literacy – the ability to read (interpret) and write (produce) images – trumps all other strategies for teaching and learning language arts and mathematics, as well as preparing students for future academic and career success.
