Information on making multimodal projects

This sources offers the “right questions” to ask students to consider when assigning multimodal projects, “starting with the genre and rhetorical situation: What does your audience need to know? And how do you design a text that effectively addresses your audience’s needs?” The instructor’s manual offers an annotated table of contexts and bibliography, sample syllabi for different levels of courses, a range of assignments and assessment strategies to help you think about what you would like your students to learn as they explore and engage in multimodal communication.
