Abstract:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

Writing development has been a key area of research in applied linguistics
for some time, but most work has focused on children's writing at
particular ages. Christie and Derewianka draw on extensive research in both
primary and secondary years to trace the developmental trajectory from age
5 or 6 through to 18.

Using a systemic functional grammar, they outline developmental changes in
writing in three major areas of the school curriculum - English, history,
and science - as children move from early childhood to late childhood and
on to adolescence and adulthood. The book considers the nature of the
curriculum at various stages, discussing the interplay of curriculum goals,
pedagogy and developmental changes as children grow older. It also explores
how emergent control of the different subjects requires control of various
subject specific literacies and considers the pedagogical implications of
their findings.

School Discourse will be of interest to anyone involved in the writing
performance of children in schools, particularly applied and educational
linguists.

'The authors have made a tremendous contribution to our understanding of
the paths learners follow in written language development from early
childhood to late adolescence. They provide, for the first time, detailed
and clearly articulated descriptions of the language students learn to
control as they write key genres across the curriculum. The book will be a
frequently-consulted reference work for teachers, curriculum developers,
and writing researchers.'
- Professor Mary J. Schleppegrell, School of Education, University of
Michigan, USA.
