Visual to Print Transfer: A Literacy Strategy for Theme Analysis of Text
This article shares a literacy strategy to support students’ analysis of the theme of text and provide evidence to support their assertion. The strategy is called Visual to Print Transfer (VPT). The VPT strategy leverages students’ out-of-school literacy practices involving media images of Hollywood icons as a way to support their understanding of how the elements of text contribute to the underlying theme in visual images and in literature. Student work samples are provided to highlight the strategy in practice.
