The power of words and images

We are bombarded with words and images every day. This course helps us to think a little more about where words come from, how they are used to manipulate us, and how advertisers play with words and pictures to persuade us to buy things. You will also read how cartoonists use pictures to make statements about the world, and analyse some cartoons. Complete this course to improve your critical and visual literacy skills.
