ASSIGNMENT: Digital Mapping Multimodal Project


After spending the semester analyzing digital texts of different stylistic “modes” (linguistic, aural, visual, spatial, gestural), students produce their own digital texts through a mapping assignment. Students choose a public issue of local interest and concern; find 3-5 locations to visit, observe, and document; write their observations; and present their findings “as an argument for social change” in the form of a digital map. The resources needed for this assignment, as written by this teacher, include: Google Maps; digital camera; access to transportation; access to primary sources pertaining to area of research.
