Product Description
This checklist serves as a guide for students when they are learning how to read images. Images are texts as well and a range of things need to be considered, such as the action, props, background and symbols in an image. This checklist helps students become familiar with all of those aspects.

I have used this checklist in the following ways:

1. As part of a whole class activity so that students may familiarize themselves with the checklist. I displayed an image on the smartboard and described the image twice, once without the checklist and again after using the checklist.
2. As a small group activity where each group got a section of the checklist and we put it all together as a class to describe an image.
3. I've also used it in small groups but each person in the group was assigned a section, and together they described an image.
4. As a way to discuss the importance of an image and caption in both fiction and non-fiction text
5. As a way to evaluate the relevancy of am image that a student wants to incorporate into their own non- fiction text

It has been a very useful tool to support students in learning to discuss images. I hope it works for you as well!

I love colorful resources and so I had these printed on bright colored card stock and then laminated so that one class set can last me the whole year. I highly suggest this!
