Multiliteracies

Assessment 1: Short Essay (30%) (Word count 1200 words + or – 10%)

You are to write two short essays of 600 words each. Unlike traditional essays, these short essays will have a very small introduction and a very short conclusion (one or two sentences).

Short essay 1: The term ‘multiliteracies’ is preferred by some educationalists over the term ‘literacy.’ Explain what ‘multiliteracies’ means and how this differs from traditional ideas of literacy.

Short essay 2: Identify why a student may benefit from being taught in such a way in classrooms. In your response, consider how this may support students from different language and social class backgrounds.

Word count includes all text (headings, in-text citations, captions and direct quotes). It excludes the Reference List.

Further details will be provided via Blackboard and sessions.

How to present your work:

  • Give your work a title (s). Title each essay
  • Add a reference list at the end
  • Number your pages
  • Put your name and student ID in the header or footer
