DESCRIPTION
Writing the Visual: A Practical Guide for Teachers of Composition and Communication
 offers a variety of creative and theoretically based approaches to the development of visualliteracy. The book’s introduction and twelvechapters provide an array of pedagogical
 perspectives, exceptional eld-tested assignments
for students writing across the disciplines, anda strong bibliographic base from which readersmight continue their exploration of visual studies.Presenting ideas both imaginative and practicalfor teachers and advanced students,
Writing the Visual 
aims to expand our understanding of how visual and verbal elements contribute to atext’s effectiveness. Extensively referencing key
gures from ancient times to the present who
have developed theories, described histories, and provided analyses of images,
Writing the Visual 
 responds to the growing desire for critical andcreative engagement with visual language incomposition and communication classrooms. 
 Discussions of the condition of women in Iranmust attend to the relevant debates taking placein the heterogeneous society that is Iran, debates present not only in universities, the media, and  government but also in streets, on billboards,and during fashion events.
