ENG IV: Visual Literacy
Photographs, advertisements, maps, websites, television programs and movies, artwork: we are constantly ‘reading’ non-print texts for meaning.   This course will provide the opportunity to analyze the visual messages being broadcast through understanding and evaluating the purpose, author, subject, medium and genre, composition, audience, and context which shapes those texts’ meanings.  This work will make us better critical thinkers, consumers, and masters of media messages.
