Explain why context is important to looking and thinking critically about a visual text:
It is important to understand and interpret the context of a visual text before you can successfully undergo critical thinking. Critical thinking is a form of thinking that is based on a context, therefore, the context is required prior. By identifying the context you gain the ability to think and reflect on a particular issue to form a response. This will allow underlying meanings to be discovered and therefore, the response to a visual text will be enhanced and much more informative.
