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…

Gardner, Paul – Literacy, 2018
The teaching of writing has been a relatively neglected aspect of research in literacy. Cultural and socio-economic reasons for this are suggested. In addition, teachers often readily acknowledge themselves as readers, but rarely as writers. Without a solid grasp of compositional processes, teachers are perhaps prone to adopt schemes that promote…

Hannaford, Jeanette; Beavis, Catherine – Literacy, 2018
Increasing numbers of children are caught up in global flows of moving peoples. This movement may be voluntary or forced and is experienced within a range of settings. Coming from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds, and moving around the world due to their parents' employment, the children found in traditional International Schools are a…

Magnifico, Alecia Marie; Lammers, Jayne C.; Fields, Deborah A. – Literacy, 2018
Building communicative competence in textual and multimodal literacies has become a linchpin of learning, of engagement with the world, and of participation in online and blended spaces. Young creators now compose online and with digital tools, often in what we call "user-generated content affinity spaces" -- interest-based spaces that…

Darvin, Jacqueline – Literacy, 2017
Young children today have greater access to culturally and politically sensitive information than at any other time in history. Although there are many positive aspects of children having greater access, negative consequences can also result, especially when they do not have sufficient structured and supportive opportunities to question, discuss…

Mangen, Anne; Weel, Adriaan – Literacy, 2016
In the course of digitisation, the range of substrates for textual reading is being expanded to include a number of screen-based technologies and reading devices, such as e-readers (e.g. Kindle) and tablets (e.g. iPad). These technologies have distinctly different affordances than paper has. Given that textual reading is at the same time likely to…

The read aloud was interactive, where the participants were encouraged to respond to the book and to each other throughout the session. The authors created a…

Bazalgette, Cary; Buckingham, David – Literacy, 2013
In recent years, literacy educators have increasingly recognised the importance of addressing a broader range of texts in the classroom. This article raises some critical concerns about a particular approach to this issue that has been widely promoted in recent years-- the concept of "multimodality". Multimodality theory offers a broadly…

Bansel, Peter – Literacy, 2013
In this paper, I give an account of the ways in which narratives and identities change over space and time. I give an account of a mobile and changing human subject, one who does not simply express or represent her- or himself through narrative, but is constructed and reconstructed through narrative. I draw on Paul Ricoeur's concepts of "narrative…

Yandell, John – Literacy, 2013
The novel, it has generally been assumed, was from its very beginnings a literary form designed to be read by solitary, silent individuals. One consequence of this assumption is that the class novel, read amid all the noise and sociality of the classroom, tends to be treated as a preparation for more authentic, private reading, or even as a poor…

Maybin, Janet – Literacy, 2013
After briefly reviewing how reading is conceptualised in the "Progress in International Reading Literacy Study" and the English National Curriculum, this article examines two unofficial reading activities in a class of 10-11-year-olds' to see how far these activities match up with the official definitions of reading, or whether they…

Lawson, Hazel; Layton, Lyn; Goldbart, Juliet; Lacey, Penny; Miller, Carol – Literacy, 2012
Literacy is traditionally narrowly conceptualised as a set of skills related to accessing and generating written or printed text. For children designated as having severe learning difficulties (SLD), who are unlikely to develop these "conventional" literacy skills, such a conception implies their semi-literacy or nonliteracy. Although conceptions…

Apperley, Thomas; Walsh, Christopher – Literacy, 2012
This article argues that digital games and school-based literacy practices have much more in common than is reported in the research literature. We describe the role digital game paratexts--ancillary print and multimodal texts about digital games--can play in connecting pupils' gaming literacy practices to "traditional" school-based literacies…

Lambirth, Andrew; Smith, Sarah; Steele, Susanna – Literacy, 2012
Evidence suggests (Ofsted, 2007) that the role of the Subject Leader is crucial in how well poetry is taught in schools. This paper attempts to provide some insights on "what it is like" to coordinate poetry teaching in a primary school. Some of the data confirm elements of the findings from earlier research on the state of poetry in…
