ischoolumd at gmail.com
Fri Apr 15 12:14:29 EDT 2016
The Professional Education program at the University of Maryland’s iSchool
invites children’s and school librarians and K-12 teachers to participate
in a one-day, in-person workshop entitled *An Educated Eye: Looking at
Picture Books (and Other Images)*.
Participants will work with leading children’s literature expert, Maria
Salvadore, to gain a better understanding of how illustration and other
visual images convey meaning. By examining illustrations and other images
that appear in various media, participants will leave this workshop with
the ability to identify and evaluate picture books (and illustration in
general) that are appropriate for different age children from the very
young to adolescents.
At the completion of the workshop, participants will receive a Certificate
of Completion from the University of Maryland’s Office of Extended Studies
and earn six (6) contact hours of continuing education units (CEUs).
