Multiliteracies in ELA Classrooms

IMDb – The Internet Movie Database

October 17th, 2012 · 1 Comment


I’m not sure if this qualifies for what were to share, but I always find myself coming to this website after watching an intriguing movie. If I have any questions about the movie, I can usually find answers in the ongoing dialogues. Or even if I simply want to engage in a discussion on a topic regarding the movie, this website provides a common space to start and contribute to different conversations.

I also visit the website for their neat ‘Did you know?’ section.

Overall, I think the website provides a good platform for a discourse around movies, but there is a general want when it comes to user-friendliness and the over all structure of forums.

Here’s a link to a movie I watched recently and for which I felt the urge to visit the website to find out more.

    Certainly this is a form of social media — beyond information about the titles there are opportunities for users to rank, review and comment. How might the increasing opportunity for individuals to join the public discourse shift the mandate of the ELA teacher?
