Sharon Peck (State University of New York at Geneseo, USA) and Tracy A. Cretelle (University of Rochester, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-0000-2.ch005
Participatory literacies are central to developing instruction that makes curriculum real, relevant, and alive to students. This chapter focuses on how to integrate participatory practices and place-based narratives into instruction in order to engage students in reading, writing, and taking action in their school communities. The chapter looks at ways that teachers have incorporated multimodal narratives and multiliteracies to engage students in both using and producing products through written, oral, and digital modes. Guided by theoretical views of participatory literacies, place, community-based pedagogies, and multimodal narratives, the chapter explores ways to engage students in creating multimodal content to represent their learning as well as take action within the school and wider community.
