Title: Multimodal Teaching and Learning
Subtitle: The Rhetorics of the Science Classroom
Written By: Gunther Kress
Carey Jewitt
Jon Ogborn
Tsatsarelis Charalampos
Series Title: Advances in Applied Linguistics
Description:

This book takes a radically different look at communication, and in doing
so presents a series of challenges to accepted views on language, on
communication, on teaching and, above all, on learning. Drawing on
extensive research in science classrooms, it presents a view of
communication in which language is not necessarily communication, image,
gesture, speech, writing, models, spatial and bodily codes. The action of
students in learning is radically rethought: all participants in
communication are seen as active transformers of the meaning resources
around them, and this approach opens a new window on the processes of learning.
