Synopsis

Intermediality: Teaching Critical Media Literacy challenges the practice of teaching the classics & the canon of acceptable literary works far removed from students' experiences, with emphasis on across-the-curriculum teaching of critical thinking, critical reading, & critical viewing skills. The authors, Ladislaus Semali & Ann Watts Pailliotet, present literacy education as "intermedial" in nature-it entails constructing connections among varying conceptions & sign systems. Reading printed texts requires more than simply decoding letters into words or sounds, it involves finding meaning, motive, structure, & affect. The same goes for reading the electronic text. Intermediality argues for the discourse of literacy to take up a critical stance by examining a whole wide array of texts that form the meaning-making process of the looming information age.
