Reading and Representing in English/Language Arts

Reading and Representing in English/Language Artsby: Ethan Cody

A prominent goal of English/Language Arts classes has consistently been to teach students to communicate about things that matter to them. Although communication has primarily come in the form of lecture or print in the past, new technologies have changed the landscape of ELA as teachers seek to support their students in interpreting and producing a wide array of multimodal digital communications.

New Terminology: Multi-Modal.Teachers can accomplish the task of implementing technologies into their teachings through leading discussion regarding how particular modes work together to produce positive and beneficial effects. Students can produce their own multimodal texts, justify why they selected certain modes, and explain the effects they hoped the multimodal techniques would have on their viewers.

This type of instruction can help students develop multimodal representational competence as well as enhance their understandings of core disciplinary concepts and standards perpetuated by the inherent curricular measures.
