Applying Visual Literacies in ESL Learning - Creating Stories about Place

Applying Visual Literacies in ESL Learning - Creating Stories about Place

This combined lesson and plan is designed for Intermediate ESL and ESOL learners who are ready to expand their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills through imagining different places. The associated activity includes visual texts (images), a series of questions to guide classroom interactions, and vocabulary for elicitation toward developing effective speaking and writing skills. This is a semi-structured activity where students are encouraged to draw on their own experiences of different places. The activity moves the student from being a visual spectator to being a textual critic. By learning in an independent but guided way students can better prepare for the independent learning expectations of tertiary or workplace learning. This resource can be adapted for a particular curriculum or used in a stand alone session of 2-4 hours.
