Reading and Writing in Multimodal Contexts: Exploring the Deictic Nature of Literacy
Bailey, Margaret Denice
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
This study examined the reading and writing processes that seventh-graders used in hypertext versus traditional print environments. Additionally, it considered the impact of incorporating technology and collaboration into pedagogical practice. Three separate literacy activities involved students in finding information, creating presentations, and working collaboratively. An examination of the literacy processes students used showed no differences that were clearly attributable to the students' choices of print or hypertext environments. Student achievement scores in Reading and Language Arts were compared to their choice of print or electronic resources, with a finding of no significance. However, when scores on individual work were compared to scores on collaborative work, a significant difference was found.
