  • 2. Two ways of knowing with different cognitive strategies • Written text is governed by the logic of time or temporal sequence whereas visual images are governed by spatiality, composition, and simultaneity (Kress, 2003). • In addition, meaning is derived from position in the temporal sequence of written text, whereas meaning is derived from the spatial relations or grammar of visual images (Kress & van Leeuwen, 1996).

  • 9. Questions for a “Picture Walk” • What catches your eye first? • How do the books' physical components relate to the content? • Where is the text located on the page? • How do the illustrations spreads, single-page images, collages, overlapping images, or portraits convey the content? • Where is the viewer positioned? • Do the images in the book change from beginning to end? • What is foregrounded, and what is included in the background? • What are the dominant colors? • How is white, or negative, space used? • Are there recurring image patterns (motifs, symbols)? • Are there elements that seem odd? • What is large? Why are certain elements larger than others?
  • 10. Problems with “picture walks” “During a picture walk, the illustrations and design elements of a picture book are often reduced to serving as prompts for reading the written text, rather than as a system of meaning in their own right (Serafini & Ladd, 2008).” Serafini, Frank. "When Bad Things Happen to Good Books." Reading Teacher Dec.-Jan. 2011/ 2012: 238-41. Print.
