ABSTRACT:

Examining Meaning Making as Literacy Learning: Research, Practice, and Policy

Meaning making is a process that manifests from personal experiences, beliefs and values, and the great variety of text encountered in everyday life. When educators orient their instructional practices towards meaning making they can provide opportunity for building relationships, valuing multiple points of view, and emphasizing learning as a process. This presentation will share findings from multiple case study research of five public secondary English teachers and their perspectives and practices on helping their students make meaning with multimedia texts. Implications for classroom practice and educational policy will be examined.

 

 

This monthly practice talk series was created for postdocs to practice and receive feedback on a presentation they are preparing for an upcoming conference, job interview, or other opportunity. If you’re interested in signing up for a future practice talk, please contact Amy Clobes at aclobes@virginia.edu.
