We are 650% more likely to engage with online content containing images. The rise of multimedia doesn’t have to cheapen the role of text, understanding visual grammar teaches students to think more strategically about the words they use. Rooted in the creative decision-making kids love, designing vocabulary slides will move students from learning definitions to examining the conceptual nature of a word.
Created with the overburdened lives of teachers in mind, this guide uses the multitouch format to provide a varied degree of background information. Image captions contain essential ideas. Interactive visuals enhance depth. Self-guided animations demonstrate process, all to place control over pacing squarely in the hands of the user.
I hope your students experience the same joy that my 5th graders discovered as they created the images found in this book. Thank you for downloading it. If you find that this book is the helpful reference I believe it to be, reviews or ratings will be greatly appreciated. -Mike
