Abstract

The purpose of this curriculum project is to explore the impact of visual literacy upon this generation of students. Specifically, this curriculum project will speak to the emergence of technology in the classroom, and how technology can be used to benefit student literacy rates. It will also discuss the increasing usage and importance of graphic novels and photographs as a medium for learning. This project also intends to define visual literacy and the impact of visual literacy insofar as its benefits for students. The pedagogical implications of visual literacy in a social studies classroom will also be evaluated.
