Social Diversity within Multiliteracies: Complexity in Teaching and Learning

Friday 1st of May, 12.00pm -1.00pm
C1-60, Magill Campus

Social Diversity within MultiliteraciesPresented by Dr Fenice Boyd, University of Buffalo
and Dr Cindy Brock, University of South Australia

Please bring your lunch and join us for an informal discussion over several chapters in this book edited by both Fenice and Cindy.

In this book, we use a multiliteracies theoretical framework to highlight social diversity and multimodality as central to the process of meaning making.

Chapter 1 outlines how we use a multiliteracies theoretical framework in our work.
Chapter 9 highlights how one teacher educator, Claudia Haag, a university teacher educator, drew on a multimodal theoretical lens in a recent research project in the U.S. Claudia’s research features her return to the primary classroom and discusses her experiences learning from, and with, her young English learners. (Most of Claudia’s students were recent immigrants to the U.S.).

The Foreword, Preface, and Chapters 1 & 9 are in the PDF attached. If you do not get a chance to read these before Friday, you are still more than welcome to attend.
