Workshop: An Approach to Multimodal Literacy | Media Grammar for Teachers

  • Media Grammar Overview and Ohler’s perspective.
  • This chapter is a very useful, though basic, guide to the technical aspects of digital storytelling in a videographic environment.

Working in a small group, first review your assigned section of Media Grammar for Teachers and then watch the brief associated video.

[Note: the answer to that pressing question is: media, of course.]

Working with the ideas in the section, produce a series of still images or a brief video that is a fair representation of the main concepts and prepare 3-4 minute presentation to explain them to your classmates.
