<I>Multimodal Literacy challenges dominant ideas around language, learning, and representation. Using a rich variety of examples, it shows the range of representational and communicational modes involved in learning through image, animated movement, writing, speech, gesture, or gaze. The effect of these modes on learning is explored in different sites including formal learning across the curriculum in primary, secondary, and higher education classrooms, as well as learning in the home. The notion of literacy and learning as a primary linguistic accomplishment is questioned in favor of the multimodal character of learning and literacy. By illustrating how a range of modes contributes to the shaping of knowledge and what it means to be a learner, <I>Multimodal Literacy provides a multimodal framework and conceptual tools for a fundamental rethinking of literacy and learning.

Includes CD-Rom Why are visual approaches to literacy important? Children's experience of texts is no longer limited to words on printed pages - their reading and writing worlds are formed in multimodal ways, combining different modes of communication, including speech or sound, still or moving images, writing and gesture. This book is a practical guide for teachers in making sense of multimodal approaches to teaching writing. The book covers topics such as: - The design of multimodal texts and the relationships between texts and images - How to build a supportive classroom environment for analysing visual and audiovisual texts, and how to teach about reading images - How to plan a teaching sequence leading to specific writing outcomes - Examples of teaching sequences for developing work on narrative, non-fiction and poetry - Formative and summative assessment of multimodal texts, providing levels for judging pupil development, and suggestions for moving pupils forward - How to write, review and carry out a whole school policy for teaching multimodal writing The book is accompanied by a CD, which contains a range of examples of children's multimodal work, along with electronic versions of the activities and photocopiable sheets from the book, and material designed for use with interactive whiteboards. It will be a valuable resource for primary teachers, literacy co-ordinators and students on initial teacher training courses. Visit the UKLA's website : here

With the recent explosion of activity and discussion surrounding comics, it seems timely to examine how we might think about the multiple ways in which comics are read and consumed. Graphic Encounters moves beyond seeing the reading of comics as a debased or simplified word-based literacy. Dale Jacobs argues compellingly that we should consider comics as multimodal texts in which meaning is created through linguistic, visual, audio, gestural, and spatial realms in order to achieve effects and meanings that would not be possible in either a strictly print or strictly visual text. Jacobs advances two key ideas: one, that reading comics involves a complex, multimodal literacy and, two, that by studying how comics are used to sponsor multimodal literacy, we can engage more deeply with the ways students encounter and use these and other multimodal texts. Looking at the history of how comics have been used (by churches, schools, and libraries among others) will help us, as literacy teachers, best use that knowledge within our curricula, even as we act as sponsors ourselves.

Literacy research has focused increasingly on the social, cultural, and material remaking of human communication. Such research has generated new knowledge about the diverse and interconnected modes and media through which people can and do make meaning and opened up definitions of literacy to include image, gaze, gesture, print, speech, and music. And yet, despite all of the attention to multimodality, questions remain that are fundamental to why multimodal literacy might matter to people and their communities. How, for instance, might multimodal literacy be implicated in wellbeing? And what of the little-researched sonic in multimodal ensembles? For centuries singing, as a basic form of human communication and tool for teaching and learning, has been used to share knowledge and pass on understandings of the world from one generation to another. What, however, are the implications of singing and its effects on people’s prospects for learning and making meaning together? In this thought-provoking book, the authors explore notions of wellbeing and what is created when skipped generations are brought together through singing-infused multimodal, intergenerational curricula. They argue for the import of singing as a multimodal literacy practice and unite theoretical ideas, practical tools, and empirical research findings from a ground-breaking seven-year study of intergenerational singing in multimodal curricula. Educators and researchers alike will find in the pages of this interdisciplinary book responses to the question of why multimodal literacy might matter and a sample curriculum designed to foster the expansion of people’s literacy and identity options across the lifespan. /div

Our image-rich, media-dominated culture prompts critical thinking about how we educate young children. In response, this volume provides a rich and provocative synthesis of theory, research, and practice that pushes beyond monomodal constructs of teaching and learning. It is a book about bringing “sense” to 21st century early childhood education, with “sense” as related to modalities (sight, hearing), and “sense” in terms of making meaning. It reveals how multimodal perspectives emphasize the creative, transformative process of learning by broadening the modes for understanding and by encouraging critical analysis, problem solving, and decision-making. The volume’s explicit focus on children’s visual texts (“art”) facilitates understanding of multimodal approaches to language, literacy, and learning. Authentic examples feature diverse contexts, including classrooms, homes, museums, and intergenerational spaces, and illustrate children’s “sense-making” of life experiences such as birth, identity, environmental phenomena, immigration, social justice, and homelessness. This timely book provokes readers to examine understandings of language, literacy, and learning through a multimodal lens; provides a starting point for constructing broader, multimodal views of what it might mean to “make meaning;” and underscores the production and interpretation of visual texts as meaning making processes that are especially critical to early childhood education in the 21st century.

Graphic novels have attracted much media attention in recent years. Blockbuster movies based on graphic novels and the popularity of manga have increased their visibility. Bookstore sales and library circulations of graphic novels have risen markedly. Having lost the stigma of the lowly comic book, graphic novels are firmly entrenched in pop culture. This book examines high school students' responses to an art graphic novel and how those responses change after students learn conventions employed in the comic format. Readers' responses were analyzed based on Rosenblatt's theory transactional analysis, Iser's theory of gap filling, and Culler's theory of conventions, plus Kress's concept of multimodal literacy framed in semiotic theory. Meshing print literacy and visual literacy, graphic novels exemplify a type of multimodal text requiring multimodal literacy skills. Acquiring these skills is essential to be considered literate in the 21st century. This book provides a rationale for teachers to expand the concept of literacy beyond print by including a variety of multimodal texts such as graphic novels in the curriculum.

Developing literacy in English can no longer be thought of as learning only language to communicate meanings. The role of images in our everyday environment is increasingly prominent. The ways in which language is used is changing in combination with images to construct meanings. In Teaching Multimodal Literacy in English as a Foreign Language, the multimodal nature of contemporary 'Englishes' in conventional and computer-based formats, informs the practical teaching/learning experiences of students. This book introduces a theoretical framework incorporating functional visual and verbal grammar as a basis for teaching multimodal literacy in English and includes practical illustrations of teaching/learning activities for learners from the early years of schooling to adult education. The emphasis throughout is on the intercultural understanding needed by the learner to comprehend and compose multimodal texts in the social and cultural contexts of English as a foreign language. The book also acknowledges the increasing integration of sound effects, music, gesture and spatial meanings, and digital rhetorical features of hyperlinks, windows, split screens and other semiotic resources in electronic texts.
