This manual provides the theory and specific steps to develop concept imagery, the ability to image a gestalt (whole) from language. It describes the important questioning techniques that stimulate mental imagery, so the teacher can learn to help students visualize language and verbalize what they have imaged. This imagery-language connection is essential for oral and written language comprehension, as well as critical thinking.
