Woodhouse, Howard – Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, 2020
In this article I consider David Olson's account of how literacy produces a new kind of consciousness, one in which a process of metacognition makes possible both knowledge and an understanding of language itself.

Brockmeier, Jens – Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, 2020
Writing and narrative are commonly taken to be two separate fields of research and scholarly reflection. In this paper, I offer some thoughts on how they are related, using David Olson's work on literacy and the development of metalinguistic awareness as a frame of reasoning. As Olson has shown, language is not only a form and practice of…
