Laura Terrill - The Power of the Image

Back to 2016 Fall Conference Presentations

This multimedia production was developed for the STARTALK 2016 Fall Conference by Laura Terrill.

Images have the potential to create interest, to inspire, and to tell stories. They allow us to go beyond the walls of the classroom bringing the cultures and languages of the world to our students in powerful ways. How can we incorporate images in ways that allow learners to interpret, negotiate and make meaning from the image?

In this presentation, participants engage in easy to implement strategies for working with visual texts in the target language.
