"The book provides a much-needed guide for teachers to incorporate visual teaching and learning strategies into their classrooms." -- Rhonda S. Robinson, Distinguished Teaching Professor, and Mary Baker Turner, Graduate Student "A valuable and well-ordered amalgamation of research on the use of images to support learning through visual literacy in all subjects and age levels. Gangwer has effectively organized information from many sources into a form that is readable and practical for a wide variety of education practitioners, including classroom teachers and fine arts teachers." -- Ellen Herbert, Art Teacher "Hold on to this author-he is magical! I feel so lucky to have this book on my shelf! I learned more from reading Gangwer's book than I have in eight years of professional development workshops." -- Laura S.
