The New York State English Council's scholarly journal, The English Record,
is seeking submissions on the following topic: The Multi-modal, Multimedia,
Multicultural Classroom
Whether it is the invented spellings rapidly typed with thumbs into a phone
or the deftly interpreted visual cues of a complex video game, many of the
students we are now teaching, and most of those in our future, have a need
for skills in areas commonly ignored by traditional classrooms. How do we
meet the needs of students who are more skilled on a computer than we are?
In what ways are canonical texts merging into media and attracting student
attention? How does employing multi-modal techniques help teachers reach
students? What can be the benefit of pairing multicultural subjects with
these techniques? How can graphic novels, online texts, books on CD, blogs,
email, wikis, teleconferencing, digital technologies, etc. be beneficial to
teachers? Please share experiences, techniques, effective lesson plans,
and research on related subjects.
