Bailey, Nancy M.; Carroll, Kristen M.
English Journal, v99 n6 p78-85 Jul 2010
The authors investigate how innovative research assignments based on students' personal interests can help them want to develop their research skills. They find that multimodal communication and representation, including film, written scripts, comic strips, music, and photography, encourage students to carefully select information from the research they want to communicate and to analyze it in ways that they may not if they are merely reporting it in a traditional format. (Contains 2 figures.)
