The New York City Curriculum Frameworks for language arts suggests that by grade 7, that students will read, listen, view and evaluate information from a variety of sources including literature, media and technology. By grade 8, students will access, interpret and evaluate print and nonprint sources in a variety of formats.
It is up to the English teachers tohelp investigate which literary ideas can be applied to these new kinds of multimedia and where new ones have to be invented to help students learn to distinguish between polemic and scholarship and between advertising and poetry.
