Nonlinguistic Representation


Linguistic instruction – via lectures and reading – dominates instruction. The nonlinguistic representation strategies are a collection of strategies which are not language based. Instead, they include visual imagery, kinesthetic or whole-body movement, and auditory experiences. Examples include the use of concept maps, images, computer simulations, dramatizations, and original musical composition or mashups.
