This study investigates the effectiveness of using visual imagery with secondary students in order to improve their learning and comprehension of various texts. The study includes an examination of the effectiveness of visual imagery with English as a Second Language Students and Learning Disabled students as well as the practical application of visual imagery strategies in the general education classroom. Data collection from this study attempts to provide further information to this topic by conducting experiments using various visual imagery strategies in four secondary English classrooms. Strategies include the use of film adaptations of text as well as lessons which require students to generate their own visual imagery to better understand a piece of text. Participants of these studies had the chance to reflect on the lessons through surveys as well as reflection sheets which required them to break down the visual images in comparison to the text.
