Summary

Visual literacy--an increasingly important skill that has lately been added to the wide range of skills that reading/English teachers are expected to teach--can be coupled with lessons in literary appreciation through the medium of the adolescent novel. Since students participate in a great deal of television viewing, it is as important for them to learn critical viewing skills as it is for them to learn critical reading skills. Teachers can mesh lessons in literary appreciation and visual literacy through examining how authors create characters, actions, and descriptions. As has been illustrated by author Richard Peck, students can examine adolescent novels in the light of considerations that might be made in filming them. In novels such as those of Paul Zindel, chapters can be analyzed in terms of camera shots, images, and scenes. Filmed versions of novels can be compared with students' prior envisioning of filmed versions of those books. Teachers can also help students to explore the film technique of montage and to consider such topics as the cinematic qualities of the dialogue and opening scenes of Zindel's novels. (GT)
