This book contains a collection of ten lesson plans, each based around an authentic infographic.
The lessons move through the common stages of classroom discussion to help students access their existing knowledge and develop their spoken fluency, through comprehension tasks to help students develop the ability to understand text and visual data and on to digital research and presentation tasks to help students develop the ability question and check the credibility of information, think more critically about the motivations behind it and to reformulate and integrate what they have discovered into their existing beliefs and opinions.
Each lesson ends with some form of creative output task such as a presentation, article, essay or infographic creation that enables students to share what they have learned.
