Intermediality: How the Use of Multiple Media Enhances Learning.
Lapp, Diane; Flood, James; Fisher, Douglas
Reading Teacher, v52 n7 p776-80 Apr 1999
Describes how one fourth-grade teacher used television, videos, computers, classroom guests, and lots of reading and writing to engage his students in their language-arts unit, focusing on the book "Shiloh." Discusses how such "intermediality" (using multiple media) increases students' comprehension and understanding of text, capturing their attention, reinforcing content knowledge, and increasing aesthetic responses.
