Hello and welcome to this module, Grade 5 learner!
Storybooks are collections of stories for children. Some storybooks are made up only of written words. Readers of these books have to imagine what is going on in the story by creating the images of the characters and the setting of the story and events in their minds. Other storybooks, however, include visual elements—drawings or photos—that aid readers to fully appreciate and understand the text. Sometimes, storybooks are made into films or online activities that include multimedia elements such as sounds and animations. These visual and multimedia elements affect how the readers or viewers interact with and respond to the story.
Through this module you will learn to:
- analyze how visual and multimedia elements contribute to the meaning of a text;
- identify examples of visual and multimedia elements;
- give correct meaning of a text with the aid of visual and multimedia elements; and
- observe politeness in communicating with classmates.
