Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500, ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org Literacy with Visuals for Secondary Learners Description: Struggling readers often have trouble because they don’t have strategies to access text. One of the most important strategies good readers employ is visualization, which is the first step in activating thinking. However, most struggling readers do not know how to visualize. Join us for a day of exploring a variety of ways you can bolster students’ comprehension, confidence, classroom participation and even test scores through the use of images, including photos, videos, graphs, art, charts and clips. Learn how to incorporate the use of images into your current curriculum so not only your struggling readers but all students will benefit. Local data attests that teachers who make this instructional change have increased student attendance, decreased behavior problems and class management issues as well as increased reading scores on formative and summative assessments. Time will be given to work on a unit you bring with you. Materials: Bring a unit or lesson plan with readings your students find challenging. A vocabulary heavy unit is often easily enhanced by visuals.
