In this course, teachers will learn how to use visual learning techniques such as graphic organizers, concept maps and outlines to help students at all levels achieve academic success. Visual learners benefit from seeing material in representations other than printed words on paper, and these techniques can make a huge difference in student understanding. Visual representations can also help IEP students, EL students and any students with a tendency to process information in unique (i.e. non-linear) ways. Teachers will learn specific techniques for teaching with a variety of visual representations. This course is appropriate for all grade levels K-12.
