Abstract: This qualitative case study sought to understand how disciplinary literacy practices associated with engineering design were used to facilitate communication among the four fifth-grade members of one collaborative learning group engaged in brainstorming initial design ideas for a remote-controlled, paddle-propelled robotic watercraft. Specifically, we focused on understanding how sketching was used by group members and for what purposes. Analysis of nine student-generated sketches and discourse during the team’s first work session suggested that sketching was “mixed and mashed” with other literacy acts to create design worlds, facilitate deep learning, and navigate pathways towards engineering goals.
