This five-week self-paced course explores visual literacy in the classroom and its connection to the North Carolina Essential Standards. The course includes weekly assignments that provide opportunities for educators to practice concept mapping, inquiry-based discussion, and multimodal activities in their own classrooms and to reflect within a collaborative peer learning community. Participants learn strategies to guide discussions about works of art and create a portfolio of visual literacy activities based on the NCMA’s permanent collection.
Participants also gain an understanding of the relevance of visual literacy in the classroom and how strategies can support the ELA Anchor Standards for Literacy through the practice and application of literacy-related activities focused on comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency.
This course is designed for teachers of all disciplines and audiences. A certificate of participation for 10 hours will be provided (1 CEU, with prior approval from the local school system).
