Picture books and the reluctant reader

Standard

 Picture books are often utilised with reluctant readers, and students with English as a second or even third language . They regularly appear in the secondary classroom for this reason. They have a role in introducing narrative concepts, visual grammar and the terminology employed in creating competency in visual literacy.

Research indicates that the focus in Australia is on intersemiosis, multimodalities, critical literacies and the development of narrative strategies.
