  • Many of the same benefits as picture booksAppeal to children because... Similar to cinema Brings together different mediaAward-winning, critically acclaimed graphic novels such as BONE, Persepolis, Maus, and The Tale of One Bad Rat are prime examples of this new type of contemporary literature.Move curriculum-content graphic novels material to morning session
  • Splattering words like Whooom! and Blam! across cartoon versions of the burning Twin Towers might seem like a risky way to depict the worst ever attack on American soil. Unsurprisingly, a few eyebrows were raised when graphic artists Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colon decided to produce their version of the 9/11 Commission Report in that most American of media - the comic book. Their 144-page book recounts the horrific events which led to the devastation of the World Trade Centre in parallel with reactions from the government. The Arabs may be dastardly and the firemen heroic, but it makes an impressive read, distilling a complex story into a series of timelines. Jacobson insists that the book remains faithful to the Commission's findings, arguing that the graphic art helps people, particularly younger readers, to grasp what happened.

Fourteen year old Brook Watson, an orphan serving as a crew member on a trading ship, was attached by a shark while swimming alone in the harbour. His shipmates, who had been waiting on board to escort their captain ashore, launched a valiant rescue effort.
  • In April 1778, while Copley’s painting was on exhibit in London’s Royal Academy, a detailed description of these horrific events was published in a London newspaper. The text, believed to have been penned by Brook Watson himself, describes the scene in excruciating detail, ultimately reassuring readers that thanks to the surgeon’s skill, “after suffering an amputation of the limb, a little below the knee, the youth received a perfect cure in about three months”.Copley chose to depict the moment of highest dramatic intensity -- the instant just prior to the third, presumably fatal, attack. Viewers had no way of knowing that the lad would be plucked from the jaws of death by his stalwart companions.36 mins

    Reading Pictures
    ExploringVisual Literacy
    Hertfordshire Schools Library Service
    Thursday 13th October 2011
    Visual Literacy
  • Human beings first attempts at passing information on to future generations took the form of paintings.
    The oldest known cave painting is that of the Chauvet Cave, dating to around 30,000 BC
    From Cave Paintings
  • To early script in the form ofhieroglyphics
  • The Ancient Egyptians along with many others told stories in pictures
  • Through hand written Illuminated manuscripts
  • To Gutenberg and the printing press
  • Trace the development from pictures to words and pictures to today when....
  • “All of us are watchers - of television, of time clocks, of traffic on the freeway - but few of us are observers. Everyone is looking, not many are seeing."- Peter M. Leschak
    Video
  • Visual messages are all around us
  • In the form of ...
    Books
  • Magazines
  • Websites
  • Videos/Computer Games
  • Diagrams
  • Documentaries
  • Printed
    Or electronic
  • Or Non-Fiction
    Fiction
  • Books with things to do
  • Three dimensional pop up books
  • Three dimensional objects
    itius.net
  • Paintings
  • Maps
  • Today the ratio of visual image to text is increasing...
  • We no longer expect pupils to be inspired by this.......
  • Book pages are now presented like web pages
  • The same with Newspapers
  • Light reading in 1908
  • The world pupils inhabit has become increasingly visual
  • ‘Young people learn more than half of what they know from visual information, but few schools have an explicit curriculum to show students how to think critically about visual data.’
    Mary Alice White, researcher at
    Columbia Teachers’ College
  • So what do we mean by Visual Literacy ?
    glendabaker.net
  • Visual Literacy
    Visual literacy is the ability to interpret, negotiate, and make meaning from information presented in the form of an image. Visual literacy is based on the idea that pictures can be “read” and that meaning can be communicated through a process of reading.
    John Debes, co-founder of the International Visual Literacy Association, 1969 (Wikipedia 2010)
  • Words are used to recall things we have seen and experienced
    Different parts of the brain are used when we are exposed to words and pictures
    Combination of visuals and text increases comprehension
  • Draw a cat
  • Civet cat
  • Children are increasingly dependent on visual images as a way of learning
    Many children find it easier to visualise images rather than read words
    TV, film, computer games are a bigger part of their lives than the written word
    As a result are more visually literate
  • Who benefits from including visual images ?
    • Special needs
    • English as a second language
    • Visual learners
    • Reluctant readers and learners
    • Boys
    • In fact, most people!
  • So visual literacy has become more important
    Visual images are becoming a predominate form of communication
    Pupils need to be able to make critical judgements when looking at and using images
    There are no guide lines to help interpret images the meaning results from the context
  • “Our students must learn to process both words and pictures. To be visually literate they must learn to “read” (consume and interpret) images and write (produce and use) visually rich communications”Frey Nancy and Douglas Fisher
  • It is important that pupils learn to question images in the same way they question written text.
  • Seeing cannot always be believing
  • Developing critical thinking skills through images
    Pupils are able to interpret images on a literal level
    The higher order thinking skills of analyzing, synthesizing, and interpreting the image does not come naturally
    To do this the viewer must be helped to develop the necessary abstract thinking skills
    Goldstone 1989
  • Thinking Skills in the National Curriculum
    • Information processing
    • Reasoning skills
    • Enquiry skills
    • Creative thinking skills
    • Evaluation skills
    Department for Children, Schools & Families 2009
  • Using the 5 Ws (&H) at all levels
    What happened ?
    Who were the people involved ?
    When did it happen ?
    Where did it happen ?
    Why did it happen ?
    How did it happen?
    Answers bring up more questions i.e. What were the motives ? What influenced those involved? What were the consequences of their decisions?
    Objective Questions – dates, places, names
    Subjective Questions- opinion – motives, influences
  • Using Pictures to Encourage Questioning Skills
    In groups – have a look at the picture and ask as many questions as you can about it
    What do you know ? What do you want to find out?
  • Now look at all your questions:
    1. Which 3 questions are most interesting to you ?
    2. If you were a newspaper reporter, which 3 questions do you think are the most important ? Why ?
    3. How would you find out the answers to your questions?
  • Images can be manipulative
    The way the image is presented affects themessage the creator wishes to impart
    Light
    Juxtaposition of images
    Perspective
    Location
    Size of items
    Scale
    Frame
    Dimension
    Depth
    Background/Foreground
    Colour
  • Questions that need to be asked when studying images
    What message are the images trying to convey?
    Do you agree with the way the message is being depicted?
    Where has the information come from?
    What has been left out?
    What is the relationship between the image and the text?
    What effect does the size of the images have?
  • Interpreting the image
    Caption 1:
    On a hot summer day in 1947, these spectators watch the final moments of a tense baseball game. Some fans are yelling in disapproval at the umpire because they don’t like the decision.
  • Interpreting the image
    Caption 2:
    Entertainer Paul Robeson sings to labourers working at the racially integrated Moore Shipyards in Oakland, California on 21st September 1942.
  • Interpreting the image
    Caption 3:
    A mournful crowd gathers to watch the funeral procession of Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior, drive past.
  • Interpreting the image
    Did it seem that all the captions could fit the image or did some make more sense than others ?
    Did hearing three captions about the same image make it more confusing to figure out what was really happening ? Why or why not ?
    Words can sway how we think about the picture. Captions help us “pin down” meaning. Captions and our own expectations influence what we see or read into an image.
    The right caption was: Entertainer Paul Robeson singing to labourers
  • How can visual images help literacy
    Stimulates creativity and inspires children to write their own stories
    Develops empathy
    Encourages children to explore texts further by making information or stories more accessible
    Develops social and cultural awareness
    Develops thinking and questioning skills
  • Inspire creativity
  • Close up images can inspire poetryhaikus are a “close-up”
  • Copper Coin
  • Ball point nib
  • Knife blade
  • Use images to develop pupils’ social and cultural knowledge
  • Cartoons can
    highlight topical subjects for discussion
  • Gerald Scarfe depicts Prince Charles as a genetically modified weed
    Why?
    Background knowledge is needed
  • Bad
    Bad news I’m afraid Adam you’re a monkey!
    monkey
    Wouldyou Adam and Eve it? Adam and Eve it
    Charles Darwin
    Cultural knowledge is assumed
  • Chris Riddell
  • Use images to pass on personal information and develop self awareness
  • Based on a Victorian parlour game, each contributor described themselves with images of their favourite things.
  • Donald Urquhart
  • Emma Chichester Clarke
  • Mary Fedden
  • Eric Clapton
  • Add LVS work on this
  • What are you like ?
    Helps get to know new pupils
    Helps pupils to analyse themselves
    Less threatening than “write about yourself” – children can be given the option
    Anthony Browne says “everyone can draw!”
    Great joint project with Art department
    What would you draw ?
  • Using film
    Children spend a lot of time watching TV and filmthis is not going to change so we need to tap into this resource
    Sequencing, predicting, recounting, supposition
    Music, light, sound and colour create mood
    The camera is the eye of the viewer, angles, close ups, long shots resting on details all in form the viewer and add atmosphere
  • “The Motorist” film from BFI with activity:
    • What are your reactions ?
    • What adjectives would you use to describe the couple driving, the policeman ?
    • Work in small groups to write bullet points for what happens next
    • Could form the basis of a lesson in which students develop their ideas into a piece of creative writing
    Write a sentence explaining what you think the film is about – how do your interpretations differ
    link
  • Watson and the Shark by John Singleton Copley
  • Watson and the Shark by John Singleton Copley
  • Need the rest of these slides
  • Graphic novels & comic booksin the curriculum
  • Comics, Graphic Novels and Manga
    All use 'sequential art’ frames with speech bubbles
    Cinematic format reflects film and computer games
    Have visual ‘permanence’ unlike film, time moves at the pace of the reader
    Manga originated in Japan and subversively reads from right to left from back to front which appeals to pupils
    No longer seen as controversial a growing number are suitable for children (list of publishers and titles in pack)
  • One of the earlier graphic novels
    Will Eisner coined the phrase ‘graphic novel 'in 1978 to describe his collection of short stories ‘A contact with God’
  •  
    Graphic Artists Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colon produced a version of ‘9/11 Commission Report’ as a comic book
    Jacobson maintained ‘the graphic art format helps people particularly younger readers, to grasp what happened’
  • Marjane Satrapi’s
    Graphic Novel ‘Persepolis’ gave her the freedom to tell a wider audience her tale of revolution in Iran
  • Words and pictures help to make more difficult texts accessible
  • ‘Self Made Hero’ has produced Manga versions of Shakespeare’s plays
    ‘It is a very visual medium. We thought that Manga would work well with Shakespeare because he wrote the stories to be played out on a stage rather than just read aloud. Manga brings that visual element into play’
    Emma Hayley
    Self Made Hero
  • Classical Stories
    Classic Crime
    Biographies
  • Evidence from one school librarian
    ‘I was chatting to one of our less able Y10 boys a few days ago, and he starting discussing a ‘Midsummer Nights Dream’ throwing in references to the characters, plot, etc. This surprised me (especially since he's not in a group which 'does‘ Shakespeare) , but turns out he got the info and interest - if not a love for Will from reading Gaiman's 'Sandman' comics.’
    Adrian Thompson
  • Outlaw: The Legend of Robin Hood
    Written by Tony Lee Illustrated by Sam Hart
  • Now there are Graphic Novels to suit both boys and girls of all ages
    Glister Series by Andi Watson
  • Graphic Novels
    now have a valid place in the Library!
    Create interest in a variety of literary genre and range of topics
    Increased interest in reading
    Ability to discuss art and writing
    Understanding meaning in visual phenomena
    Increase literacy in all senses
    Increased understanding of popular culture
    Development of language skills and vocabulary
  • How to Exploit Your Collection
    Invite staff from local comic book shop to give a talk
    Have a session with an artist drawing Manga
    Compare a graphic version with original work of literature
    Organise a book talk around your collection
    Get pupils involved in selection of new titles, start a discussion on censorship
    Start a Graphic Novel book group
    Pupils produce their own comic book. There are free online websites - makebeliefscomix.com
    Invent your ownsuper hero reflects classical heroes from the past on - heromachine
  • Manga deals with almost every theme imaginable, not just sci-fi and fantasy.’
    Manga is linked to the Japanese animation style known as ‘Anime’... drawn animation which will be familiar to pupils from film and TV
    Excellent introduction to Japanese culture
  • Using Picture Books
  • A picture book is one in which pictures play a significant role in the telling of the story
    Either a wordless story told only in pictures or one in which pictures and words work together
    An illustrated book is one in which the words provide the story which is only decorated by the illustrations
  • “What is the use of a book” thought Alice “without pictures”
    Printed word and pictures together are effective when telling stories and delivering information
    Use across the curriculum
    Use when introducing a new topic so add to book boxes
    Pictures can be read on lots of different levels so have something for all ages and abilities
  • http://www.epbcii.org/
    Other languages and cultures
  • War and Peas
  • A simple explanation of sustainability
  • George saves the world by lunchtime
  • Geography
    Scan of George saves the world by lunchtime – children to write down everything they find and what they would do with it
  • Picture books are special. They are not like anything else. The best ones leave a tantalising gap between the pictures and the text— a gap that is filled by the reader’s imagination.’
    “These are not books to be left behind as we grow older. I would like to encourage the act of looking.”
  • Paintings on the walls tell another part of the story
    Use of cinematic icons such as King Kong and Marilyn Monroe
    Ordinary objects morph into fantastic ones
    Jokes or surrealist elements in background always have a relevance to the story
  • Paintings on the walls tell another part of the story
  • Get paintings from Hertfordshire art collection Escher to complement Anthony Brown
    Use Picture This and also get pictures from Herts if possible
  • Skills Developed
    References to art, culture, and ideas enrich the story and make his books ideal for opening conversations
    Ask the question ‘What is surrealism?’
    Talk about the symbolism
    There are many different ways to interpret the stories the pictures often telling a different story from the words thus developing the imagination
    A sophisticated level of humour, characterization and plot mean the books appeal to children and adults
  • End of Anthony Browne
  • Picture This
  • Example of the Power of Words and Pictures
    ‘Blake's drawings have taken Rosen's personal text and made it universal, a template for grief and recovery’
    Guardian
  • How Blake Interprets Rosen’s Sadness
    How do the pictures make you feel?
    Cartoonish pictures soften what is a very emotional subject
    Sadness is depicted in four drawings where the background gets greyer and greyer until suddenly it’s raining.
    Beneath a drawing of him smiling the statement 'This is me being sad’
    Make comparison between the words and the pictures

  • An Amusing Slant on Nature
    Frank and funny. Takes young children, skipping and whooping, out from under the gooseberry bush.
    Independent
  • There are sneaking, creeping, crumpling noises coming frominside the walls’
    "This is a picture book for the twenty-first century child: visually and emotionally sophisticated, accessible, and inspired." --ALA Booklist
    “Gaiman has one creepy imagination, and his goose bump-inducing tale is given full visual throttle by McKean’sillustrations”Independent
  • Lucy’s fears are ignored by her family
    Use of photography, painting, drawing and collage
    It is atmospheric, sinister, scary and funny
  • USING STORIES WITH NO WORDS
  • Benefit of no words
    Pupils have to look for visual clues to create a meaningful story line
    This requires sophisticated thinking and develops imagination.
    Experience has to be read in the pictures so a need to engage and get involved emotionally
  • Shaun Tan The Arrival
    The homely and familiar The new and strange
  • Get pupils to write their interpretation of the story
    Use the illustrations to explore narrative structure
    Think about what happened before the story begins
    For PSHE start a discussion on poverty and wealth
    Speech bubble the narrative
    Tell the story from the point of view of different characters
    Make a play of the story
    Ideas for the Arrival
  • Opens Discussion On Many Levels
    • Inspired by Raymond Briggs ‘Snowman’
    • Deals with the problem of ‘belonging’
    • No text so no guidance like a new immigrant with no language or knowledge of customs
    • Opens discussion on new realities – a new school, job, relationship or country
    • Set out in same format as Graphic Novel
  • The Lost Thing
    Show video – won Oscar
    The Lost Thing trailer
  • Discuss what medium has been used - watercolour, pen and ink, collage etc...
    How has the artist created mood with colours and light
    How are the images placed on the page
    Read the story without showing pictures and get pupils to draw their ‘mind pictures’
    How has illustration changed over the years?
    Research an illustrator
    Compare books across the age range
    More ideas at Book Trust ‘Big Picture’ and ‘House of Illustration
    Ideas for Using Picture Books
  • Kate Greenaway Award
    Short listed books form backbone of good collection of picture books and illustrated texts
    Website offers help in analysing picture books
    Local and national involvement
    In school voting creates interest in illustration
    In school competitions – bookmarks, posters
    http://www.carnegiegreenaway.org.uk/greenaway
  • Using Non-Fiction texts
    Use non fiction picture books with all ages to present new topics
    Printed word and pictures used together can be very effective at delivering information
    Helps pupils grasp the essence of more complex subjects by working from simpler examples
    Make use of factual comic books and manga
    Include in book boxes
  • Maps and Diagrams
  • Imagine you are a giant looking down into your bedroom or kitchen
    draw a map – you have to ‘visualise’ to do this
