Literacy has become central to debates on policy and practice in education in the UK and other English-speaking countries. This book introduces teachers to current thought on the place of literacy in education, providing many different perspectives. It charts the latest ideas, and relates practical and policy concerns to an understanding of theoretical issues.

Concise and accessible, it connects with key aspects of the experience of professionals and students alike, and provides issues for group discussion or individual study, as well as suggestions for further reading.


'… A fine book - thought-provoking, well constructed and well argued by an author who knows what he is talking about.' - Gary Thomas, Times Educational Supplement
