Multiliteracies in ELA Classrooms

Media Literacy in Action?

July 10th, 2013 · No Comments

I came across this article yesterday about students in Brazil practicing their English grammar and spelling by correcting celebrity tweets. I don’t particularly approve of prescriptive grammar myself…but I thought it was interesting how polite the students were when they tweeted the corrections. I wonder if were they given explicit instruction in being nice on the internet. Is politeness something that should be a part of online literacy? What do you think?
