Pedagogical Analysis of Two Indonesian Science News Articles - A Multimodal Study

Yulizar Komarawan

Abstract

Nowadays, web 2.0 helps us raise scientific literacy. It provides a space for experts to disseminate the current scientific knowledge or journalists to spread the re-contextualized scientific knowledge which is easy to be understood by non-specialized publics. Perhaps, that just raises a question: how can journalists successfully transform complicated scientific knowledge into accessible knowledge for lay audiences? This study investigates how scientific knowledge is reconstructed in Indonesian science news articles so that it is accessible for the lay audiences. Particularly, the present study focuses upon the process of recontextualization of scientific writing discussing gene. A qualitative case study was employed to achieve the goal. Particularly, this study focused upon analysing classification, formality, framing of the articles. Two multimodal texts taken from two Indonesian websites kompas.com and nationalgeographic.co.id were used as the data of the present study. The findings suggest that Indonesian news media tend to present the knowledge in weak classification, low formality and weak framing.
