Embodied Readings: Exploring the Multimodal Social Semiotic Resources of the English Classroom
Yandell, John
English Teaching: Practice and Critique, v7 n1 p36-56 May 2008
The article presents research into literacy practices in secondary English classrooms in a multicultural urban school. Using data from digital videotape, it brings a multimodal social semiotic approach to bear on the exploration of how literature is read collectively in the classroom, and how teachers encourage the active, embodied reading of these literary texts. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
