The World History Survey

Visual Literacy and Associative Thought

Lael Sorensen | Jul 28, 2020

The World History Survey demonstrates how to teach visual literacy and encourage associative thought, key features of critical inquiry for beginning history students. This resource consists of three separate lesson plans and accompanying visual primary sources. The lesson plans can be used as independent units, or as a scaffolded sequence of lessons - that is, each lesson introduces a new skill while rehearsing the skills taught in earlier lessons.
