  • This course introduces students to multimodal critical discourse analysis as both a theoretical framework stemming from multimodal semiotics and a set of analytic tools for uncovering dominant ideologies in print language and visual representations. Through a survey of critical discourse analysis approaches and methods including transitivity analysis, deixis, multimodal metonymy and metaphor analysis, and visual analysis; students will examine underlying assumptions perpetuated by representations of developmental education from external policy-driving organizations. Additionally, students will explore the potential for developmental educators to harness multimodal representations of their students and practice in order to reclaim the narrative of developmental education.
