AbstractNecessary Images examines the need for a teaching strategy that meets the demands critical pedagogue, Peter McLaren outlines in his recent books regarding the diverse student population. In meeting these needs, physical image work is implemented, abstracting techniques developed by theatre theoretician Augusto Boal and educator Nancy King. As images are created by students representing an issue or topic, students create, concentrate, follow directions, work collaboratively, and make decisions. All these skills lead to critical thinking and rehearsing ways to cope with life situations in the best way possible for each student. Necessary Images is designed to be implemented as a teaching tool, supplementing existing teaching strategies in any discipline for engaging students in the learning process by connecting real life experience to the curriculum.
