Molly Bang's brilliant, insightful, and accessible treatise is now revised and expanded for its 25th anniversary. Bang's powerful ideas—about how the visual composition of images works to engage the emotions, and how the elements of an artwork can give it the power to tell a story—remain unparalleled in their simplicity and genius. Why are diagonals dramatic? Why are curves calming? Why does red feel hot and blue feel cold? First published in 1991, Picture This has changed the way artists, illustrators, reviewers, critics, and readers look at and understand art.

This book is designed to introduce teachers to digital technology and its uses in the classroom as a new teaching tool that can create curriculum, document learning, provide instant feedback, and share student growth with parents. The book's introduction details the ease in which digital technology can be incorporated into the curriculum. Following the introduction, eight chapters are presented which correspond to the curriculum areas of: (1) language; (2) storytelling/drama; (3) emerging literacy; (4) social studies; (5) physical development; (6) mathematics; (7) sensory exploration; and (8) science. Each chapter begins with an introduction to the curriculum area, its importance, how it is learned, and how that learning can be facilitated through the use of digital technology. The chapters present sample lesson plans that list plan objectives, detailed descriptions of the project, and extension opportunities for small groups, independent explorations, one-on-one instruction, and family involvement. Each chapter ends with a checklist for tracking student progress. (SD)

Astronomical concepts can be truly hard to comprehend, especially those of planetary sizes and distances from Earth and from each other. These concepts are made more comprehensible by the group of illustrations in this book, which put scale extraterrestrial objects side by side with objects on Earth we can more easily relate to. For example, study the pictures of Earth floating above Jupiter’s Great Red Spot and the asteroid Itokawa resting beside Toronto’s CN Tower. These mind-bending images bring things better into perspective and will help you understand the size and scale of our Solar System. In later chapters, you will be told how close the visionaries of the past came to guessing what today’s explorers would find. Astronomer/painter Lucien Rudaux’s masterpieces of Mars dust storms anticipated Viking and Mars rover images by nearly a century. Space artist Ludek Pesek envisioned astronauts setting up camp on the lunar surface in scenes hauntingly similar to photos taken by Apollo astronauts decades later. But the real benefit of this work is in better grasping the nature of our universe -- how big it is, now large it is, and how we fit into it.
