Multiliteracies: Comics and Sociocultural Theory

A. Lapidus

USM, United States of America

Comics are a powerful L2 learning tool that remains on the periphery of ESL/EFL pedagogy. This presentation will explore being multiliterate in the context of L2 acquisition. It will look at comics through the lens of the sociocultural theory, offering a new interpretation of communicative language teaching as a pedagogical philosophy. Participants will discover new tools and ideas to use in the ESL/EFL classroom. They will learn how to identify the formulaic in comics, create activities based on visual narratives, and develop their own multiliteracy materials to use in the classroom.
