Multiliteracies: Literacy Learning and the Design of Social Futures

  • Paperback
"Multiliteracies" addresses the question of the future of literacy teaching: what should be taught and how. This new collection brings together the work of the most exciting voices in the field. Each of these specialists proposes a new pedagogy which recognises both cultural and linguistic diversity, and the many ways of representing meaning beyond language, such as the visual. Contributors include these leading international literacy researchers: Elsa Auerbach, Courtney Cazden, Norman Fairclough, James Paul Gee, Gunther Kress, Joseph Le Bianco, Carmen and Allen Luke, and Sarah Michaels.

Multiliteracies considers the future of literacy teaching in the context of the rapidly changing English language. Questions are raised about what constitutes appropriate literacy teaching in today's world: a world that is both a global village yet one which local diversity is increasingly important. This is a coherent and accessible overview of the work of the New London Group, with well-known international contributors bringing together their varying national experiences and differences of theoretical and political emphasis. The essays deal with issues such as: the fundamental premises of literacy pedagogy the effects of technological change multilingualism and cultual diversity social futures and their implications on language teaching. The book concludes with case studies of attempts to put the theories into practice and thereby provides a basis for dialogue with fellow educators around the world.
