A Remaking Pedagogy: Adaptation and Archetypes in the Child's Multimodal Reading and Writing
Berger, Richard; Zezulkova, Marketa
Education 3-13, v46 n1 p64-75 2018
This paper proposes combining theories about, and practices of, using archetypes and adaptation in education for the purposes of multimodal literacy learning. Within such contexts, children of primary school age act as readers, performers and researchers, exploring and analysing existing adaptations of archetypal stories and images across time, space and platforms, as well as writers constructing and producing their own adaptations of archetypes in varying forms. Our suggestions are that "revisiting" and "remaking" existing texts and practices in the multimodal primary classroom can be a route to a deeper and more sophisticated learning experience, and one which challenges current definitions of reading, writing and literacy.
