Synopsis

Teaching With Visual Frameworks Focused Learning and Achievement Through Instructional Graphics Co-Created by Students and Teachers by Christine Allen Ewy

`Teaching with Visual Frameworks provides case studies that demonstrate how one teacher in one classroom can make a difference by using Visual Frameworks (graphic displays) that allow teachers and students to get the results they want from the work they do' - Jessie Kalinowski, National Board Certified Teacher' Golden Apple Fellow Educator in Residence/Illinois State Board of Education Visual representations of course content are essential tools in today's classrooms. They can offset the challenges associated with teaching diverse student populations while simultaneously bringing instructional techniques into greater harmony with the growing influence of technology and the visual media on the way students process information. This groundbreaking volume provides a complete guide to visual instruction and assessment using the Unit Visual Framework (UVF). Combining pictures, colour, and text for meaningful representation of the core concepts in a unit of study, UVFs result in a deepened understanding by all students-regardless of language level. Key highlights of this indispensable manual include: - Specific steps and suggestions for designing effective UVFs - Real-life examples from classrooms successfully using these visual displays - Tips for utilizing UVFs in standards-led instruction and student-directed learning - More than 100 sample graphics and UVFs.

Reviews

Teaching with Visual Frameworks provides a breath of fresh air to the dialogue on strategies to improve student learning.

As I read, I realized that the author's innovative visual framework for learning was a previously missing tool in my bag of educational teaching/learning tricks. -- Margaret Byrnes, Managing Associate The system and techniques described in this book mark the beginning of what might be nothing short of a revolution in classroom pedagogy. The reader will find this book not only highly practical but also quite provocative in its implications. -- From the Foreword by Robert J. Marzano, Adjunct Associate Professor Teaching with Visual Frameworks embraces the increasing diversity of our student population, values students as multicultural resources, and honors students as evaluators. These unique attributes make this book an invaluable guide for educators across settings and contexts. -- Margo Gottlieb, Director, Assessment and Evaluation Teaching with Visual Frameworks provides case studies that demonstrate how one teacher in one classroom can make a difference by using Visual Frameworks (graphic displays) that allow teachers and students to get the results they want from the work they do. -- Jessie Kalinowski, National Board Certified Teacher, Golden Apple Fellow
