IV. A Final Activity: Why Multimodal Composition?
... Because it is intellectually demanding for this time and space.
Directions for the Last Classroom Activity
- Read to the top of page 2. Stop at the sentence that says: Why should composition teachers, researchers, and scholars be interested in taking more advantage of these opportunities?
- FILL all of the margins on page 1 (see the gallery above). Notice that this is an essay/book for teachers, not students but you still have a good perspective on all of this.
- Here are some things you can address in your margins: This piece was written in 2007.... so is it still relevant? How so? Or, why not?Do most of your classrooms (excluding this course) look like what the authors suggest? Where do you agree and why? Where do you disagree and why?
Guidelines for your 4-Point Extra Credit Opportunity
- Create a new left tab on your ePortfolio (perhaps one of the last/bottom tabs). Call it: "Why Multimodal Composition?"
- Annotate all six pages in the margins... fill the entire white space (like the example above shows)
- Take a photo or scan of each of the six pages of your full annotations and put those six images in a gallery module. These images CANNOT be sideways or upside down.
- In 1-2 CATCHY sentences, write out your answer to the question: Why Multimodal Composition? (do this right on the webpage)
