Reading the Weather: Ruling Passions, Numeracy and Reading Practices in an Australian Farming Community.
Journal of Research in Reading, v24 n3 p307-12 Oct 2001
Shows how one of his ruling passions, the weather, led a teenage boy to engage in a variety of reading practices (and associated writing practices) in a variety of semiotic modes, drawing in different ways on numeracy knowledge. Concludes by arguing that both research on multi-modality and the New Literacy Studies point in a similar direction: towards expanding the notion of what counts as reading. (SG)
