A Multiliteracies pedagogy: A pedagogical supplement

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Four elements are proposed in the ‘pedagogy of Multiliteracies’ schema: Situated Practice, Overt Instruction, Critical Framing and Transformed Practice. These are not intended to be a rigid learning sequence. Nor are they intended to displace existing practices of literacy teaching, or to imply that what teachers have already been doing is somehow wrong or ill-conceived. Rather, they aim to provide ideas and angles with which to supplement what teachers do.
