Kedra, Joanna – Journal of Visual Literacy, 2018
Competency in visual literacy (VL) is crucial for effective visual communication, and thus for living and working in a visually saturated environment.

Clark, Christina; Teravainen-Goff, Anne – National Literacy Trust, 2018
The link between literacy and health has been evidenced quite well, with studies indicating that people who struggle with literacy are also more likely to have poor physical health. However, what we know about the relationship between mental wellbeing and literacy is much more meagre. There is some evidence to suggest that higher levels of mental…

Jackson, Jayne H.; Doell, Elizabeth H. – Literacy Research and Instruction, 2017
Existing literature acknowledges the potential variances between home and school in the values, priorities, aspirations, and practices surrounding literacy.

Baker, S. K.; Beattie, T.; Nelson, N. J.; Turtura, J. – National Center on Improving Literacy, 2018
An early skill in learning to read has as much to do with hearing how words sound as it does with seeing how words are written. Phonological awareness involves being able to recognize and manipulate the sounds within words. Learning to identify the sounds in words through instruction happens best when the sounds are explicitly connected to the…
