Multimodality in writing, provides other modes of expression aside from reliance on writing. This benefits greatly Ell students because it gives them options to express their knowledge using new digital tools to support English acquisition while reinforcing their native language. In lesson planning, multicultural relevant pedagogy becomes oriented to the needs of the student’s life. As one of the speaker suggests, students engaged in meaningful work is more likely to foster the ability and power to define the world and secondly to shape the world to act in desired manner.

Unpacking the descriptive review of a child protocol by reading the various examples shed light on creating a profile of a student. Brainstorming using the four categories revealed behavioral patterns and peer group influence, academic interest, and willingness to engage in social activities, and institutional representation serving their wellbeing and dignity. The profile created represented moment in a childs development that is in constant motion and struggle. Therefore, the exercise seeks to encourage a profile that will change as the child progresses academically, influenced by the child’s material conditions.

on Tiffany

I would recommend connecting tiffany to a high school that will continue to offer the services needed to support academic and social growth. Schools that emphasize community action projects and portfolio-based assessments that allow for Tiffany to utilize her digital literacy skills, can be an option the principal can consider. Visual programming languages like Scratch allow students to create and share interactive media are effective tools to develop students’ digital literacy. Therefore, Tiffany’s readiness for High School can be determined by some sort of dual language classroom that builds upon her fluencies in both English and digital literacy.

This also allowed for establishing understanding of alternative viewpoints from different angles. Important for students in multicultural classroom or a social studies classroom for developing dialectical thinking skills.
