Learning task 5

Expected time frame: 2-3 lessons

This activity introduces students to aspects of creating a visual text which combines visual and verbal features.

Individually or in pairs, students create a static image (Word 30KB) for a calendar with an Antarctic theme. The static image will combine an image or images of Antarctica with appropriate words or quotations.

It is recommended that the teacher models this process for students before they are asked to create their own static image. It would be helpful to think aloud about the process and the reasons for choices made to create particular effects. This will also provide an opportunity to introduce relevant vocabulary to enable students to discuss and evaluate their own static images.

The assessment schedule (Word 30KB) can be used for self and/or peer assessment. Students could then be asked to discuss and select the best 12 static images for inclusion in the calendar.
