Grades 5 – 12
Type Position Statement
Published November 2003
Publisher National Council of Teachers of English

 

Description  

Teachers need both the theoretical and pedagogical base to guide their students in the best educational uses of multimedia composition. This resolution explains what educators can do to work with young people composing nonprint media that can include any combination of visual art, motion (video and film), graphics, text, and sound -- all of which are frequently written and read in nonlinear fashion.
