New book to help turn images into words

It's often said that a picture says a thousand words, but many students can struggle to put what they want to say about visual images into words.  

How to Write What You Want to Say... About Visual ImagesThe latest book in the How to write what you want to say... series provides students with a starting point to say what they want to say about a variety of images including prints, photographs,  and diagrams.  

Written by Patricia Hipwell, Dr Lyn Carter and Associate Professor Georgina Barton, How to write what you want to say... about visual images deals with eight common forms of writing about visual images. 

The guide includes helpful graphic organisers to help students plan the form of writing about a visual image. General information to improve the sophistication of writing is also available. 

How to write what you want to say... about visual images is a guide for those who know what they want to say but can’t find the words.  It is available for purchase online from logonliteracy.com.au.
