Abstract:

In an age where the use of electronic media is expanding and the nature of
traditional texts and text-based learning is changing, new literacies are
becoming increasingly important in the school classroom. This volume
examines how new literacies can be used in the English curriculum, and
presents a series of research-based studies applied to every level of
school-age education. The chapters examine: early literacy; picture books;
the internet; secondary school English; and the problems of assessment in
the new literacy age.

This forward-thinking volume will be of interest to teachers and academics
researching education, literacy, applied linguistics, and social semiotic
theory.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
