Abstract:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

This book examines new functional approaches to language and education, and
the impact of these on literacy in the classroom. The first section looks
at issues of multimodality, in which the definition of a text is expanded
to include not only that which is written down, but also the interaction of
writing, graphics, and audiovisual material. The contributors explores ways
in which language education can be expanded to deal with multimodal
discourse, whether in children's books, in textbooks, or on the web. The
second section looks at how critical discourse analysis and appraisal
theory can be used as tools for assessing the effectiveness of student
writing and literacy achievement, and also for helping developing writers
to write more successfully. The final section argues that corpus-based
studies of language have changed the way we see language, and that the way
we teach language should evolve in line with these changes.

This appealing survey of new directions in language and education includes
contributions from internationally renowned scholars. It will be of
interest to researchers in systemic functional linguistics, or language and
education.
