Authoring Histories and Literacies: The Boxed Voices Project
Long, Trisha Wies
Language Arts, v85 n4 p286-295 Mar 2008
Using the "Boxed Voices" project as one way to connect traditional and non-traditional literacies, the author examines her work with preservice and inservice teachers (university students) as they develop and sustain collaborative, literate learning communities. In her multiliteracy process, the author takes the reader from theory to practice as she discusses the project's potential impact on student engagement and new knowledge acquisition. She records her teachers' journeys through reflective excerpts, project photographs, and other multimodal methods designed to help them, and the reader, implement this project in upper elementary and middle school inclusion classrooms. (Contains 6 figures.)
