Multimodal Composition gives instructors a starting point for rethinking the kinds of texts they teach and produce. Chapters take up fundamental questions, such as What is multimodal composition, and why should I care about it? How do I bring multimodal composition into the classroom? How do I use multiple modes in my scholarship? With practical discussions about assessing student work and incorporating multiple modes into composition scholarship, this book provides a firm foundation for graduate teaching assistants and established instructors alike.
