Abstract:

This volume brings together a number of people professionally engaged inthe study of literacy, either because they are teachers or teachereducators of language and literacy, or because they are involved as socialand/or educational workers researching or providing programs to address theneeds of people at risk because of inadequate literacy skills. It thus setsup a dialogue between these two communities of writers, all bringingdifferent perspectives to the issues, some from the context of LiteracyEducation, others from the context of Social Work. All are committed to theview that provision of effective literacy programs is a matter of equityand social justice, though the ways in which they address such a view candiffer. Issues addressed include: the changing nature of literacy in themodern world; the impact of the multimodal environment in which literacynow functions; the implications of this environment for pedagogicalpractices in the teaching of literacy; the causes and consequences ofsocial disadvantage in learning literacy among various groups; and means toaddress such disadvantage.
