A New Perspective on Inquiry: A Case Study of Digital Video Production
Ranker, Jason
English Journal, v70 n1 p77-82 Sep 2007
Jason Ranker argues that struggling students need "opportunities to use print and produce meanings in diverse and multifaceted ways." His case study of two fifth-grade girls who used digital video production to better understand aspects of the civil rights movement reveals ways in which multimodal literacy practices "can create new possibilities for literacy and inquiry learning." A detailed description of their inquiry process and the product they created suggests that such work can be applied to learners of many ages and abilities. (Contains 1 figure.)
