Considering the fact that the academic essay continues to be widely used as an assessment tool within education, there is a need for students to develop their skills in this area. However, it is often the case that students perceive instruction in academic writing, if it is offered at all, as boring. This book addresses these two issues. First, the book can be used by students themselves, even in the absence of academic writing classes, as a self-help guide, from which they can develop their knowledge of academic writing and subsequent proficiency. Second, by discussing the components of academic writing in terms—such as film—which are familiar to today’s generation, students are enabled to relate to the material better and see what might have been perceived as dull from a brand new perspective. Visual learners in particular will enjoy the analogous link between films and essays, and students today are arguably more visually literate than previous generations, being exposed to visuals on a daily basis through text message iconography, computer games and the Internet. The visual instruction provided in turn helps to facilitate mental visuals in students’ minds, from which their knowledge of essay writing can start to develop.

Screenwriting Fundamentals: The Art and Craft of Visual Writing takes a step-by-step approach to screenwriting, starting with a blank page and working through each element of the craft. Written in an approachable anecdote-infused style that’s full of humor, Bauer shows the writer how to put the pieces together, taking the process of screenwriting out of the cerebral and on to the page. Part One of the book covers character, location, time-frame and dialogue, emphasizing the particularity in writing for a visual medium. Part Two of the book focuses on the narrative aspect of screenwriting. Proceeding incrementally from the idea and story outline, through plotting and writing the treatment, the workshop-in-a-book concludes with writing the First Draft. A unique emphasis on the visual elements of storytelling because the camera is always present—the screenplay must act as a guide for the director and the editor. A "workshop in a book" approach that walks the reader step-by-step through a screenplay—focusing on character, location, time frame, visual components, and transitions—with plenty of exercises that generate material for the narrative writing process. A process-oriented approach, combined with a lighthearted tone and approachable style, that allows the reader to ease into the daunting task of writing a First Draft and takes them all the way through to the end— First Draft in hand.

The Visual Brain and Peripheral Reading and Writing Disorders: A Guide to Visual System Dysfunction for Speech-Language Pathologists familiarizes the reader with the complex workings of the human visual system, the motor and sensory components of normal vision as they relate to the recognition of letters and words, and to the acquisition and rehabilitation of reading and writing. This text brings together findings from the neuropsychological, neurooptometric, neurolinguistic, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology literature on acquired visual system impairment from the past 20+ years, and the ways visual system dysfunction impacts reading, writing, and cognition. Chapters Include: Review of structural elements of the eye, the cortical and subcortical structures of the visual brain, and the motor and sensory components of normal vision The distinct functions of the three primary visual pathways (central, peripheral and retinotectal) and how they relate to reading and writing Review of five formal tests of reading and writing that are designed or may be adapted to assess peripheral reading and writing disorders And much more! A few of the features inside: Figures illustrating the various components of the visual brain that are engaged when we read and write Information on visual system deficits in left hemisphere lesions with and without aphasia Detailed descriptions of peripheral reading disorders and associated error patterns Diagnostic criteria for three different types of neglect (viewer-centered, stimulus-centered, object-centered) Description of treatment materials and methods suited to clients with acquired dyslexia due to visual system dysfunction The Visual Brain and Peripheral Reading and Writing Disorders explains the heterogenous nature of peripheral reading and writing disorders, describes the association between visual motor and sensory dysfunction and the acquired dyslexias, and provides the speech-language pathologist with specific guidelines regarding the assessment and treatment of reading and writing disorders associated with visual system dysfunction.

What can visual artifacts tell us about the past? How can we interpret them rigorously, weaving their formal and material qualities into rich social contexts to reach wider historical conclusions? Unfolding key historiographical and methodological issues, Writing Visual Histories equips students to answer these questions, showing visual analysis to be a key skill in historical research. A multifaceted structure makes this a practical guide for writing and reflecting on visual histories. A first section includes six case studies -- on topics ranging from medieval heraldry to Life magazine. These examples are followed by an exploration of essential concepts that inform historical thinking about visual matters, a treatment of disciplinary practices, and discussion of the practicalities (such as accessing museum collections and organising permissions) that scholars working with visual sources have to navigate. This book is an invaluable tool kit for opening up a historical understanding of visual phenomena and practices of looking, and for writing that takes an integrated approach to studies of the past.

The book covers topics such as: - The design of multimodal texts and the relationships between texts and images - How to build a supportive classroom environment for analysing visual and audiovisual texts, and how to teach about reading images - How to plan a teaching sequence leading to specific writing outcomes - Examples of teaching sequences for developing work on narrative, non-fiction and poetry - Formative and summative assessment of multimodal texts, providing levels for judging pupil development, and suggestions for moving pupils forward - How to write, review and carry out a whole school policy for teaching multimodal writing The book is accompanied by a CD, which contains a range of examples of children's multimodal work, along with electronic versions of the activities and photocopiable sheets from the book, and material designed for use with interactive whiteboards. It will be a valuable resource for primary teachers, literacy co-ordinators and students on initial teacher training courses. Visit the UKLA's website : here
