Book ChapterDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

The authors invite you to come with them on a learning journey. Chapters 6, 7, and 8 are designed to help you practice your visual literacy teaching strategies. Even though each of these chapters follows the same format, each one addresses a different content area: life science (insect metamorphosis), Earth science (phases of the Moon), and physical science (force and motion). They hope you find these activities helpful and that you will use them not only in your classroom but in your professional learning groups as well (see sidebar on p. 65).

Our science textbooks, computer information and test are filled with pictures and diagrams Teaching students strategies to read these visuals is critical in science. This book is filled with strategies and examples. For example, there is a step-by-step process for analyzing a complex diagram of a food web.

This book is a good resource to help teach students about metamorphosis of insects, as they change from one form to the next. Students will learn to question and exercise confidence in their ability to reason.
