Teaching with visual symbols report

  1. 1. Teaching with Visual Symbols Prepared by: Jaycris C. Agnes 2SED-SC
  2. 2. Lesson Objectives:  To define what visual symbols are.  To identify the instructional materials fall under visual symbols.  To enumerate and describe the types of visual symbols.  To identify the guidelines that must be follow when reading chart, maps and graphs. Visual Symbols
  3. 3. Visual Symbols ―worth a ―thousand words. Examine the content of the following slides.. Visual Symbols
  4. 4. Sexualization of children AT press time the Secretary of the Department of Education seem to have stepped back from implementing the sex education curriculum saying ―we have decided to hold sex education module in abeyance until a final decision is made on the consulting process.‖ At first blush that seems to be happy development. But this is no cause for jubilation for the parents who went out of their way to sue the Education Department. Because, if there is going to be any ―consultation process‖ it will merely be, as perhaps before, a rubber stamp of an aggressive implementation of a curriculum that will allow neither concession nor compromise—despite media statements of the Department to the contrary. Visual Symbols
  5. 5. The reason why this curriculum is ―immutable‖ is, it is crafted or, better still, dictated, by foreign sponsors that have bundled both content and logistics in one well-funded program. This present sex education curriculum that was supposed to be piloted, or in fact, already implemented in several schools this year carries the content of a sex-ed curriculum model issued by UNESCO in which five year olds would be literally taught about the pleasures of masturbation. The cover of the sex-ed manual carries the logo of both DepEd and UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund. There should be an overarching agenda why this seeming obsessive-compulsive behavior of international grand planners seems too overt. They are the same planners that met in Cairo in September 1994 on Population and Development; in Beijing in 1995 on the 4th World Conference on Women; in Davos Switzerland on Climate Change and Tourism UNWTO in 2007 and elsewhere. Visual Symbols
  6. 6. Whatever the grand plan is, it is troubling to finally realize that these supposedly technocrats stand on a theory that children’s innocence is a myth. Their psychological premise is that children younger than five already know about sex and are sexual ―agents‖—hence, the logic and necessity of teaching them about sex. This, of course, is not true no matter what modern theorists says—unless, of course, they have already changed human nature in the same fashion that George Soros is famed for changing a financial scenario by mere currency speculation. It is not therefore far-fetched to say that this sex education proposed by the education department will certainly disrupt the natural development of sexual awareness of children by deliberately feeding them more advanced knowledge which is still beyond their realm. This indeed is a form of ―sexualizing‖ the children which in itself is already a form of sexual abuse that may progressively prepare them for physical abuse should any occasion arise. Visual Symbols

  18. 18. Use of cartoons: a. Appropriateness to experience level. The age and the experience or maturity of the target learners must be taken into consideration. b. Simplicity – contains only the essential features. The cartoon must not contain so many details. c. Brevity of captions if ever but they may not be given any. Short and direct captions are used when necessary only.
  19. 19. Use of cartoons: d. Use of clear symbols. Use symbols that are conventional, like; the dove to mean death; the turtle to mean slow or sluggishness and others. e. Adequateness of size. The cartoon should be big enough to be seen and appreciated.
  20. 20. C. Strip Drawings These are commonly called comics or comic strip. Dale(1969) asserts that a more accurate term is strip drawings. Make use of strips that are educational and entertaining at the same time. Visual Symbols

  61. 61. 1. Visuals must be directly relevant to the audio content. 2. Redundancy between visuals and audio must be avoided. If words are displayed, viewers must be given time to read it. Rules in using visuals: Visual Symbols

  63. 63. Summary:  Like a picture, a graph and all other visual symbols, are worth a thousand words. The proper use of the visual symbols will contribute to the optimum learning.  Visual symbol come in many forms. For these visual symbols to be at your finger tips, you ought to be skilled in making them.  The collection, preparation and use of these various visual symbols depend on the great extent on your own resourcefulness and creativity. If you used them skilfully, your classroom may turn into a beehive of busy students. Visual Symbols
