Reading Games: Close Viewing and Guided Playing of Multimedia Texts
Kozdras, Deborah; Joseph, Christine; Schneider, Jenifer Jasinski
Reading Teacher, v69 n3 p331-338 Nov-Dec 2015
In this article, we describe how literacy strategies can be adapted for playing (and reading) video games--games that embed disciplinary content in multimedia texts. Using close viewing and guided playing strategies with online games and simulations, we share ideas for helping students navigate and comprehend multimedia texts in order to learn discipline-specific vocabulary and concepts.
