Summary

An effective way to teach literature to students accustomed to electronic media is to use prose and poetry as raw materials for the production of photography projects that translate print into more familiar and exciting forms. Studies confirm that "visual literacy" should be an important part of a modern student's education. "Picture reading," an activity in which students are shown a picture and are asked to describe it or its effects, can help students think of literature in terms of visual images and auditory effects rather than simply as print on the page. Even young children can benefit from this sort of exercise. Slide/tape sequence exercises, which blend narration of a piece of poetry or prose with a set of slides or other visual representation, also help develop the same skills. To create such a sequence the teacher must complete the following steps: (1) select a piece of prose or poetry for translation; (2) develop a storyboard and shooting script that describe the visual and auditory components in drawings and words; (3) collect an appropriate set of slides; and (4) develop a taped sound track to accompany the slides or other visuals. (Actual teacher developed slide/tape sequences are presented.) (JL)
