Abstract

This study builds on and contributes to work around Multiliteracies approaches to literacy education. Although multiliteracies has been well theorised in recent years, few studies have researched the practical aspects of developing a curriculum of multiliteracies where students engage in transformed practice through multimodal design. The data contributes to the field of literacy research in describing how students move beyond engaging in critique to the multimodal design of a variety of school and media texts. Employing Bourdieusian concepts of social capital and academic field, the struggles around learning to inhabit certain school discourses are explored.
