ARTiculating: Teaching Writing in a Visual World

Edited by Pamela B. Childers, Eric H. Hobson, and Joan A. Mullin

CoverARTiculating: Teaching Writing in a Visual World explores the central role that the visual plays in a multimediated, computerized culture. The contributors to this collection and the editors, through their responses to each chapter, ask how we can exploit the intersections between the visual and the verbal to improve learning. In so doing, they provide direction for the wise use of visually connected pedagogy. In each of the eight chapters in the collection, the authors present actual practices in language and visual learning as a means of inspiring additional research specific to our practices and disciplines. The authors also emphasize the need to examine our disciplinary objectives by demonstrating how to adapt language and visual arts pedagogy across disciplines.
