Literacy Education in School: Research Perspectives from the Past, for the Future

Series: Australian Education Review (No. 52)
Australian Education Review: Literacy Education in School aims to expand our understanding of the nature of literacy at a time when public and private lives have become increasingly literacy-dependent, and literacy demands more complex and sophisticated. This review of the research literature is guided by the view that what passes for effective literacy education will differ depending on language, culture, history and the technologies of communication and knowledge production.
