Abstract:

This volume brings together a number of people professionally engaged in
the study of literacy, either because they are teachers or teacher
educators of language and literacy, or because they are involved as social
and/or educational workers researching or providing programs to address the
needs of people at risk because of inadequate literacy skills. It thus sets
up a dialogue between these two communities of writers, all bringing
different perspectives to the issues, some from the context of Literacy
Education, others from the context of Social Work. All are committed to the
view that provision of effective literacy programs is a matter of equity
and social justice, though the ways in which they address such a view can
differ. Issues addressed include: the changing nature of literacy in the
modern world; the impact of the multimodal environment in which literacy
now functions; the implications of this environment for pedagogical
practices in the teaching of literacy; the causes and consequences of
social disadvantage in learning literacy among various groups; and means to
address such disadvantage.
