Abstract

Multimodal narratives give insight of a classroom, teacher mediation, and students' work. In this chapter, the authors use this facility to better understand the importance of assessment and feedback in classroom practice. The analysis of excerpts from two complete multimodal narratives made it possible to highlight the importance of teacher intentions regarding the assessment process, the chosen tasks, and the subsequent feedback. It also provided an inside perspective of what was actually implemented in the classroom and how different teacher mediation leads to different results. These identifications in teaching mediation and students' involvement emerge transversally regarding teaching levels or contexts as objects of reflection, illustration, or simply inspiration. This shows the importance this tool can have in education by addressing parallel and complementary aspects of a classroom, which makes it a powerful tool in teaching.
