Part 2: A Multiliteracies Approach to Target Language Texts – Analyzing and Creating Interpretive Lessons
Friday, March 5, 2021
2:00 – 3:30 pm
This workshop builds on the conceptual foundation established in Rethinking Interpretative Communication: A Multiliteracies Approach by allowing participants to apply their knowledge of multiliteracies pedagogy. Participants will work with existing text-based instructional materials to evaluate their effectiveness and to adapt them following multiliteracies principles. To facilitate this work, participants should identify one or two reading, listening, or viewing activities from their current textbook (or a text-based activity of their own creation) that they wish to refresh and retool during the workshop.
Participants will be able to define and discuss their understandings of multiliteracies concepts; evaluate existing text-based instructional materials in relation to multiliteracies pedagogy; and adapt existing text-based instructional materials to reflect multiliteracies pedagogy.
