Interpreting the Visual Student Book

Author: Helen de Silva Joyce and John Gaudin, Publisher: Phoenix

Interpreting the Visual provides students with a way of talking and writing about images, using an extensive and varied range of images in colour and black and white as examples and as the basis for student exercises.

It provides tools for analysing and interpreting visual images rather than creating them. However just as software programs make it possible for everyone to produce formatted and well-designed written texts, the new communication technologies put the creation and manipulation of images into everyone’s hands. Using the new technologies to create their own images is a dynamic way for students to become aware of how images are created and manipulated to convey meaning. Understanding the way images are created helps students design their own visual messages.

Interpreting the Visual student book includes all the activities from the the teacher's resource book, with colour and black and white images, plus an additional unit of exercises bringing a range of skills together.

Answers to the exercises are in the Teacher's resource book.
