What do classroom teachers do on a daily basis to incorporate the study and production of texts in multiple media? What are some of their assignments? How do teachers assign grades in a classroom where the final project may be a sculpture, a film, or a website? This book answers these and many other questions by examining the work of pioneers: teachers who have transformed their classrooms in an effort to broaden the literacy of their students. Describing some of the most innovative examples of teaching and learning, this volume offers practical guidance, including actual lessons, assignments, and assessments that have been used successfully in pioneering classrooms.
