Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an amazing book! These two scholars have built a fresh approach to the use of the graphic arts to teach an inquiry method of learning through pictorial representations. This book is an important contribution to what we would usually term as information literacy but in another dimension. . . . This is simply the best book on using visuals in education we have seen. Well-done, practical, useful, creative, thoughtful, and filled with possibility for great new advances in teaching and learning—those are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind. This is the best of the crop we have seen in a long time. Congratulations to the authors, and a well-deserved must-read, must-own, must-use recommendation from this reviewer."

David Loertscher, Teacher Librarian Magazine

"The book is fun! You will absorb content quickly and find new ways to bring graphics into your teaching and student learning."

-

School Librarian's Workshop

"Authored by two professors of education and library science and former library media specialists, this work is filled with examples and ideas to implement across the curriculum. Presented in a graphic manner, with colorful images and glossy paper, this book is an example of nontraditional presentation of materials, which is apropos to the content. . . . The content is very valuable, drawing on research and experience, tying the practical and the theoretical together seamlessly."

-

ARBA

"This book is full of information, tips, and ideas for using graphics (charts, graphic organizers, photos, diagrams, graphs) to teach and present. . . . This professional resource will prove to be helpful when collaborating with teachers and creating lessons that align with Common Core Standards."
