Constructing Gender: Female Identity Realised in Popular Culture.
Williams, Monica
The workshop described in this paper combines critical literacy and functional grammar and is intended for educators who may not be familiar with either pedagogy. The paper discusses a unit of work that was designed for a year 9 English class. It focused on how females have been constructed in pop songs since 1950 and how that construction has changed over the last half a century. The most significant result from the research was the discovery that year 9 students are capable of sophisticated text analysis. Also the research clearly demonstrated that critical literacy and functional grammar complement each other as approaches to literacy education. (RS)
