DEEP Course Inclusion: Metacognition, Critical Reading

Multimodal texts--those that occupy more than one approach simultaneously such as websites, which have textual, visual, and often audio elements--can be challenging for students to read critically and for us to teach with an eye toward metacognition. How does one annotate a blog post? How can a student read a YouTube video with purpose? Can a piece of music be summarized? This session will provide instructors with a brief background in multimodality and practical classroom approaches to help students improve their reading of multimodal texts to be more critical and metacognitive.
