  • Multimodal presentations should be tailored toward a specific audience, according to the intended purpose.

  • Students can create presentations for younger and/or older students to reach a wider variety of audiences in addition to their teacher.

  • The medium selected to present content should appeal to the intended audience and purpose.

Due to recursive nature of the standards, it is essential that teachers are aware of how all objectives within and between strands work together for optimal instruction.
