About the webinar
Using picturebooks offers an innovative, flexible and motivating approach to language development in a visual, literary and cultural context, as it allows you to bring multimodal representation into the classroom. This session shows how picturebooks selected from the British Council’s Drawing Words exhibition can be used to help children of primary school age develop English as well as visual and emotional literacy.
