Visual and Quantitative Literacy

Images are everywhere we look, especially online. From photos shared by friends on social media to illustrations in a textbook to news images reflecting current events, images can entertain us, teach us, and influence our perspectives on the world. It’s more important than ever to be visually literate—to be able to locate, evaluate, and understand visual images, and to think critically about how and why they are being used in different contexts.

Instruct: Culture and Citizenship

Culture and Citizenship

When observing a culture, it’s important to keep in mind the difference between cultural generalizations and cultural stereotypes. A generalization describes a trait that many people in a culture might share, like “hospitality” or “respect for nature.” But a generalization also leaves room for the fact that not all members of a group share that trait or demonstrate it in the same way. Have you ever been interested in or concerned about an issue in your community? What about in your state or across the country? Have you ever worked to make a difference, improve the quality of life, or implement a change in your neighborhood?
