This manual provides the theory and specific steps to develop concept imagery, the ability to image a gestalt (whole) from language. It describes the important questioning techniques that stimulate mental imagery, so the teacher can learn to help students visualize language and verbalize what they have imaged. This imagery-language connection is essential for oral and written language comprehension, as well as critical thinking.
The V/V® Manual includes sample lessons, step summaries, illustrations, and useful tips for implementing V/V® instruction. This second edition is updated and revised, offering more than 100 pages of new material. Despite the wealth of new information, this edition is offered at the same great price the V/V® Manual has held for the last twenty years.
