This unit is adapted from concepts learned from the Visualizing/Verbalizing Program by Lindamood-Bell for classroom Instruction, that helps students improve reading comprehension, language comprehension, and higher order thinking skills by developing the ability to create mental imagery for the language they read and hear, and to create an imaged gestalt – imagery for the big picture, or whole. This mental imagery for language is called concept imagery, and it is essential to comprehension skills. You should have familiarity with the program prior to downloading the lesson.
