Visual Literacy and A Raisin in the Sun

what is visual literacy
What is Visual Literacy?
  • Visual Literacy is ability to read non-print visual texts. For example, photographs, paintings, sculptures and movies.
  • When we look at pictures we infer ideas about what is happening and what is not happening in the non-print visual text.
  • These ideas come from the history we know and our own personal thoughts and ideas.
