This volume offers concrete answers to the question of how we can use imagery to enrich the teaching of reading and writing. The chapters are organized according to two guiding principles. First, each addresses specific aspects of the inextricable integration of imagery and language in the teaching of reading and writing. Imagery is not privileged over language; the fusion of the two is emphasized. Second, each focuses on a particular kind of imagery--mental, graphic, or verbal--describing teaching/learning strategies based on the deployment of that kind of imagery in the classroom.
There is currently a renewed acknowledgment of the importance of imagery in meaning. The rapid spread of the World Wide Web, computer interfacing, and virtual reality further highlights the need to attend to the influence of imagery in a networked world. In response to these shifts in scholarly and cultural perspectives, NCTE has established a committee on visual literacy, and an emphasis on visual literacy has been incorporated into the IRA/NCTE Standards for the English Language Arts. This book contributes significantly toward filling the need for explicit and specific theory-based methods teachers can use to integrate imagery into their pedagogy. Accessible and lively chapters include classroom activities and student-generated examples. Language and Image in the Reading-Writing Classroom is an excellent text for preservice and in-service pedagogy courses and an important resource for practicing teachers, researchers, and professionals in the field.

This edited book provides a rich review of theories and practical classroom applications on the theme of visualization in the reading-writing process....The bibliography and the book in general are recommended resources for new and veteran teachers--both secondary and postsecondary--particularly those interested in reading-writing pedagogy.
Language and Image in the Reading-Writing Classroom strikes me as the kind of book imagery specialists have been waiting to see....It applies very complex image theory to pedagogical uses and offers a broad range of applications....Given the NCTE resolution on imagery in education, it is timely....It could well become the key text people in the field of rhetorical studies think of when they think of imagery and education.
