Villamizar, Andres Gabriel – Journal of Visual Literacy, 2018
Tertiary students from non-English speaking backgrounds are often required to undertake preparatory language courses.

Hackett, Abigail; Somerville, Margaret – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This paper examines the potential of posthumanism to enable a reconceptualisation of young children's literacies from the starting point of movement and sound in the more-than-human world. We propose movement as a communicative practice that always occurs as a more complex entanglement of relations within more-than-human worlds. Through our…

Kervin, Lisa; Turbill, Jan; Harden-Thew, Kathryn – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
The face of early childhood education continues to change.

This case study examined a Romanticism unit within a Year 9 English class in Sydney, Australia. It considered whether popular culture could build connections between students' lives and Romanticism, and whether the process of remixing "high" Romantic poetry with "low" popular culture could foster student engagement. Thematic…
