Multimodal Mondays


2015-03-04_1629-300x164I was invited to guest blog on Andrea Lunsford’s national blog,  Multimodal Mondays.  The purpose and audience of the blog is to present practical classroom activities and course assignments that engage the many tools and strategies available for multimodal writing.   I have revisited many of the ideas and multimodal assignments from my own classes and this teaching website — Acts of Composition — and revised them for this context and audience.   This relationship demonstrates the ways teaching practices, research and scholarship can productively connect for reflective practitioners. The Multimodal Mondays posts introduce and reflect upon flexible assignments for a community of instructors who are looking for “inspiration and guidance for teaching multimodally.”

Check out my  Multimodal Mondays blog posts for detailed assignment information, resources and student samples of multimodal composition.
