Explains visual culture’s potent and multilayered meanings
Engaging Visual Culture is a guidebook for teachers to help students make sense of the pervasive flow of visual information shaping their worldview and way of being. The authors offer practical strategies to help students learn to think critically about visual culture, its meanings, and its impact on their lives. Each of the nine chapters focuses on three key concepts: Expose, Explode, and Empower. By exposing students to the presence and power of visual culture, and “exploding” the passive acceptance of the visual messages all around us, students are empowered to participate actively in constructing their own meanings.
