This value pack contains Language, Literacy and Literature,Teaching Literacies in the Middle Years and Teaching Language in Context. Language, Literacy and Literature combines concepts of language, literature and literacy within a pedagogical framework that leads readers through a series of learning processes. In other words, it is as much a book about teaching English as it is a book about learning how to learn about teaching. The book provides models for pre-service teachers to help identify the kinds of dispositions towards learning that a teacher needs to develop, such as curiosity, collaboration and willingness to 'give things a go'. It further challenges the pre-service teacher to question what they think they know, as well as discover what they need to know. A range of practical and relevant exercises and activities assist in building habits of reflexive practice. Teaching Literacies in the Middle Years addresses a 'hot topic' in education - the teaching of literacy - in relation to the middle years of schooling. It provides the foundations for understanding some of the issues and challenges in working with middle years' students in the current Australian context. All chapters are theoretically grounded in a socio-cultural perspective of literacy. The book demonstrates how teachers might go about teaching literacies in the middle years. It presents ideas, including teaching strategies that are contextualised within the practices of real classrooms and within broader long term goals for literacy learning. It helps pre-service teachers to identify the literacy needs of young people, and to apply their teaching skills to the development of appropriate and effective pedagogies for students from different backgrounds and with different life experiences and expectations. Teaching Language in Context takes the purposes for which language is used in different content areas as the starting point for teaching literacy. It recognises that students' understandings are constructed in language and that each area of the curriculum uses language in a different way. Success in each subject requires students to acquire the specialised language of the curriculum area; that is, the genres and language features through which the content is expressed. In order to successfully develop students' language for curriculum success, teachers must identify the language demands of the different curriculum areas. This textbook supports pre-service teachers to do this while familiarising them with the different curriculum areas.
