[237120, A1] Wk 3: Task 1- Understanding Key Terms Writing Response

Context is vital to the process of understanding and appreciating visual texts. It allows the audience to understand the purpose of the text as a result of where it came from, who made it, and how that affected its creation. Context opens the door to critical thinking; it allows us to view the elements within visual texts as conscious choice, which prompts us to question the origins of these choices.
