Strategy Overview

The students in today's classrooms are saturated with images. Television, movies, Web sites, magazines, billboards, comic books, even textbooks bombard students with glossy pictures and moving images that explode with color and action. However, reading works differently. Most texts don't show readers pictures. Instead, readers must supply their own images by actively converting words on the page into realistic settings, flesh-and-blood characters, and dynamic scenes or, in the case of nonfiction, memorable representations of essential content.
