A three-month study examined how interactive iconography impacts social studies and promotes critical writing skills. Groups of three middle-school immigrant students constructed museum labels using Scope Out, an experimental online revision tool that makes iconography interactive. This study included three comparison groups and one control group. Analyses of student writing revealed multiple revisions and statistically significant improvement over the control group. Overall, student-reported writing apprehension and computer anxiety decreased. Results indicate a positive relationship between the reading of iconography and writing skills.
