Engaging the Eye Generation

I hope you've had a chance to preview Johanna Riddle's new book, Engaging the Eye Generation - Visual Literacy Strategies for the K-5 Classroom. Today, she's visiting here as the last stop on her blog tour. I had some colleagues and readers email me some questions for Johanna after previewing her book and I have so enjoyed the experience of reading her work I really wanted you to meet Johanna virtually! So, Johanna agreed to let me record a Skype conversation for my readers. I hope you'll take the time to watch it. It's well worth your time!

Thank you Johanna and Stenhouse for making this tour possible and giving the readers of Once Upon a Teacher such an opportunity. I can't wait to hear what you think!

This is so encouraging and exciting--thanks to you two for your hard work and vision--

This is just too cool! First of all, I really like being able to hear an author by listening to them as much as I like hearing their voice through their words. Johanna is very engaging and makes you want to read her book. Thanks for offering this additional piece of information. What a great use of Skype!
