Considerations for making and using visual displays for K-3 education
The research question addressed in this project was, what should be considered for optimum student learning when making and using visual displays for K-3 elementary classrooms? This capstone focuses on what children need to see along with what they want to see regarding classroom visual displays. The author, an elementary art teacher, reviews literature pertaining to children's developing eyesight and cognitive abilities, along with color theory and student preference. The author has small group discussions with children to discover what young students think, she then compares this to current literature. A bulleted list of tips and suggestions, such as font size, color choice, and placement for visual display considerations is presented as a summary.
