This is the IWB activity developed by Lauren T. and me.
Develop visual literacy. Students will be able to interpret the sequence of emotion in a text from different perspectives by ‘reading’ angles, vectors, colour, character proximity and salience.

- Reading the text with the whole class and use think-alouds to draw attention to visual features.
- Model dragging and dropping adjectives that reflect emotion to match appropriate image in the book.
- Select students to do the same with the emotions/adjectives and ask the class why they think the student has made this choice. Student then drags and drops the technique used as identified by the class.
