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…

Hendry, Helen – Literacy, 2020
Education policy in England requires student teachers to demonstrate effective teaching of early reading, including systematic synthetic phonics, in order to qualify to teach.

Tabernero, Rosa; Calvo, Virginia – Literacy, 2020
Autistic learners master visual and spatial abilities; they use visual language to organise, understand and give meaning to the world.

Pantaleo, Sylvia – Literacy, 2020
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 complexity of the picturebook format requires and rewards slow looking by readers/viewers. However,…

This paper presents findings from a collaborative project on critical visual literacy in primary schools.

Carter, Jane – Literacy, 2020
The phonics screening check (PSC) was introduced in England in 2012 for children in Year 1. There have been criticisms in relation to its reliability and appropriateness as an assessment tool for early reading although supporters of the PSC see it as a valuable tool in securing progress in reading. The DfE-funded evaluation concluded, however,…

Dernikos, Bessie P.; Thiel, Jaye Johnson – Literacy, 2020
In this article, we "think with" theories of affect and transmedial storytelling to explore the cruel optimism that standardised reading pedagogies (e.g. read alouds; leveled readers/independent reading) can produce for readers. We draw on particular moments in a first grade classroom to argue that such pedagogies transmit…

Smith, Anna; West, Autumn J.; McCarthey, Sarah J. – Literacy, 2020
Building from the concept 'sponsors of literacy', the authors revisit three empirical studies to argue for mobilising notions of sponsorship beyond fixed conceptions of individual sponsors and literacy to lifewide perspectives that take into account sponsoring relations across the broader learning lives of youth. The authors take up the…

Heydon, Rachel; Stooke, Roz; Cameron, Catherine Ann; Cooper, Emma; O'Neill, Susan – Literacy, 2020
This pilot study uses 'day in the life' methodology to observe the everyday literacy practices of a self-identified thriving elder. Through the case of one nonagenarian female residing in an assisted living community in the United States, we identified the multimodal, posthuman nature of this elder's literacies, exploring how they were connected…

A pedagogical perspective for rendering ways of knowing, being and being known, "making" and the larger maker movement are shaping contemporary educational places, practices and discourses.

Gillen, Julia; Yu, Mandy Hoi Man; Fan, Gloria Ho Nga; Ho, Selena – Literacy, 2020
We approach Hong Kong's Umbrella Movement, also known as Occupy Central, encountered in 2┬ádays in November 2014 as an exemplar of literacy as placemaking. As a contemporary city-based resistance movement, the creation and subsequent resemiotisation of literacy artefacts were an important element of spatialised practice in asserting a new and…

Dyson, Anne Haas – Literacy, 2020
In this paper, I draw on two childhood ethnographies to ask basic questions about the foundation of child writing. The first question is, "where does writing come from in young children's lives?" Answering this question will lead us to childhood play as the foundation of writing. The second question is, "how do educators negotiate…
