Unit 2: Images

Unit 2: Images

Students have been exploring images and in particular, the role images play in story books. Last week, Ms Jacky shared with students a very special book. Why special? Because this book had no text – just images! Students were forced to create their own meaning of the book using their prior knowledge and imagination. Students began to wonder why this book had no words and what its purpose was:

“Why was there no writing?”
“Why did we have to tell a story, that is the book’s job!”
“The writer (author) is Thai, but he wanted to make a Thai book for people who cannot read Thai.”
“Because it is for children.”
“People cannot listen because it is Thai.” 
“A book without no pictures are for grown ups.”
