Six years since the First Edition of Literacy and Education, the ways we think about literacy have changed. The book continues to be an accessible guide to current theory on literacy with practical applications in the classroom, but has a new focus on the ecologies of literacy, and on participatory and visual ways of researching literacy.
The new edition examines
- New Literacy Studies
- Material culture and literacy
- Digital literacies
- The ecological, place-based approaches to literacy education
- Timescales and identities
- Ways in which research has moved on to inform literacy education
Classroom teachers, teacher trainers and students of literacy will find this a user-friendly guide to new theory in literacy education, clearly demonstrating how to implement this theory in the classroom in a way that is inclusive and listens to the students of today.
