When Multigenre Meets Multimedia: Reading Films To Understand Books.
Dziedzic, Benjamin B.
English Journal, v92 n2 p69-75 Nov 2002
Details a twelfth grade English class which looked at literature, films, and their connections. Notes how the class eventually broke down the distinction between serious texts available to study in school and the popular texts found outside of school. Concludes that this process of reading and remembering a group of heterogeneous texts provides a model for a parallel process of understanding the way meaning and identity are created. (PM)
