Exploring multimodal communication as literacy education from a research platform, Multiliteracies & Diversity in Education combines analyses of the changes to communication and pedagogic practice with sound research based activities for multiliteracies classroom projects. The book guides students in developing their knowledge of productive planning and pedagogic shifts, and reveals ways in which all students are able to engage in designing lesson plans and programmes involving new and traditional methods of reading and text construction. It shows how a multiliteracies pedagogic model breaks down the unnatural divides between disciplines, and provides a fresh look at literacy education.
