Merga, Margaret K. – Literacy, 2020
While qualified school librarians can have a positive influence on children's literacy attainment, very little consideration is given to the educative role of librarians in schools. Lack of attention on these librarians' educative capacity may be due to a devaluing of the educational contribution of school librarians, and it can be argued that…

One of the main purposes of the classroom-based research featured in this article was to develop 9-year-old students' visual meaning-making skills and competences by focusing specifically on elements of visual art and design in picturebooks.

The phonics screening check (PSC) was introduced in England in 2012 for children in Year 1.

The DfE-funded evaluation concluded, however,…

Drawing on a multi-year qualitative study of immigrant and non-immigrant youth storytelling, I describe youth's imaginative labour as they constructed and moved into one another's worlds. I argue that although multicultural literature is vital for affirming and expanding youth perspectives on their own and others' worlds, the publishing industry…

Barden, Owen – Literacy, 2019
This paper contributes a definition of "mobile literacy." This is worthwhile because although mobile, internet-enabled devices are increasingly prevalent in many people's lives, mobile literacy appears to be under-theorised and lacking definition. After giving an overview of the scale and nature of mobile device use, the paper develops…
