Abstract: In view of the need to prepare students for challenges and opportunities in the 21st century, there is a strong call to reform the existing English classroom curriculum and introduce a new one that includes multimodal literacy and critical literacy. This paper reports a collaborative action research between a researcher-practitioner and her teaching colleague. In the project, a revised classroom curriculum incorporating with multimodal resources was conducted under the framework of multiliteracies pedagogy in a traditional Hong Kong English classroom of a junior primary class. It is found that the new curriculum was well-received by the students and it promoted the interest of language learning among the class. There were positive changes of the teacher{174}s view in language teaching that he recognised the effectiveness of using multimodal resources in language teaching and learning; and acknowledged the place of introducing social values and moral education in language class. This study also serves as an indicator on how a local teacher interprets the multiliteracies pedagogy with his knowledge about language teaching. It concludes with a practical guide for local English teachers who intend to incorporate the framework of multiliteracies pedagogy in their own classroom curriculum.
