[Channel-talklitconversations] re Mary McBride response-visualization

In this exchange about Mike's question I was reminded of a conversation I
had several years ago with a colleague. We were talking about what we "see"
when we read, and he said if he read the words ice cream, he would see it
spelled out in his head--whereas I would picture an actual object, ice cream
cone, etc. I remember being startled, because I had just assumed words
called forth images in the mind. For him, he said, it was more like a
translation process of seeing the word(s) in his head and then having a
picture emerge. I assume this is true for some of our students as well.
This might suggest one of the reasons photos and illustrations can be
helpful in moving the process along.
