The term "multimodal media literacy" (MLM) describes the ability to interact with, analyze, evaluate, and produce information while operating within a variety of different contextual frameworks. The incorporation of several modes, codes, and languages (such as iconic, verbal, gestural, aural, and kinetic) into a single setting is what is meant by the term "multimodality," which refers to the presence of such elements. The development of skills that go beyond simple reading, writing, and speaking competency is the focus of this area of study. Specifically, this area of study is concerned with the cultivation of capacities. Literacy in multimodal media successfully includes the standard English abilities together with other skills that are uniquely relevant to the qualities and channels utilised in the process. In addition to this, it is required to have a proficient level of technology as well as skill in the manipulation and development of a literacy that is immersed in digital and collaborative spaces. As a result, the multimodal text, often known as "multi text," is produced as a result of the purposeful combination or orchestration of a great number of modes, codes, languages, and technologies. The purpose of this research is to investigate the extent to which MML is used in academic settings where English is spoken and to do so across a variety of subject areas. In addition to this, it intends to investigate the history of the MML industry, locate abilities that are transferable to other contexts, and investigate the unique talents that are linked with MML. In addition, the research will make use of two research projects that were carried out at the Bakeri school in Tabriz, both of which focused on secondary school students, in order to show the application of MML grids and evaluate the level of competency of the students who participated in the study in these abilities. The conclusions that may be drawn from these investigations will shed light on the degree to which pupils have mastered MML abilities.
