Read to Speak: Developing 21st Century Communication Skills through Interaction with Multiple Genres and Multimodal Texts

The objectives of the Seed project are to:

  • design units of work around multiple genres and multimodal texts with structured interactive activities to promote oral communication and collaboration skills that enrich student learning;
  • help students explore the features of multiple genres and multimodal texts focusing on those aspects that stimulate oral communication, e.g. the author’s intention, message and perspectives, audience, and techniques;
  • explore ways of selecting suitable multiple genres and multimodal texts and using them to enhance students’ ability to make links across different areas of knowledge, to develop and evaluate ideas, as well as to apply these skills to the assigned oral communication tasks; and
  • support students in doing self and peer assessment for/as learning.
