Analysis of Visuals

An Analysis of Visuals is a way to record your observations when flipping through the pages, glancing at pictures and understanding their purpose. The Analysis of Visuals is performed similarly to the Picture Perusal, however the Analysis of Visuals is expected to be an in-depth contextualization of each visual and needs more support with information and terms.

Rationale: Many learners are visual. Pictures have the ability to provoke feeling and interest more so than text, especially when students know little about the subject.

Instructions: Draw a vertical line an inch or so to the right of the left margin. Identify the type and objects of the pictures featured in the textbook on the left hand side. On the right, explain the reason or motive behind the picture’s presence.
