NASA Kids Club Skip to main content NASA Kids Club › Text Only Site English Teaching Forum Volume 53, Number 4 The phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” indicates that a complex idea can be communicated by a single image. We might spend an hour reading an article about the devastating effects an oil spill has on wildlife ecology. But a photograph of an oil-drenched pelican gasping for air evokes in us an instant emotional response. While both the article and the photograph communicate the magnitude of the damage that oil spills can cause, the power of an image allows us to grasp this message within nanoseconds. Indeed, cognitive research has shown that the human brain processes images quicker than it processes words, and images are more likely than text to remain in our long-term memory (Levie and Lentz 1982). With the expansion of technology that allows people from all walks of life to create and share photographs with a few clicks, our world seems to value visual media more than ever before.

What Inquiry is NOT "Science class should make students think: Our students aren't being allowed to discover the joys of experimenting, and learning on their own." hits the nail on the head, and is the reason I'm such a huge supporter of students conducting their own independent research projects.

Ironically enough however, if I had read this article while I was still a full-time classroom teacher, I would have defended myself saying that I worked tirelessly to help students enjoy science. And I would have been right. ESL English Listening & Adult Literacy - News - Audiobooks - Songs - Radio Dr...
