The Literacy Lexicon, second edition, is an invaluable Australian text for literacy and language education for students in the upper levels of education programs. It also has high relevance for practising teachers for their professional development.
Continuing the tradition of the first edition, this book explores current issues in the field through specialist essays with a respected team of contributors. It explores both new and established theories, definitions and applications of literacy education within the current educational environment. Covering reflection, pedagogy, discourse and social constructs, The Literacy Lexicon 2e critically examines recent trends in language and literacy education and provides practical methods of applying this new knowledge.
The Literacy Lexicon is designed for optimal use in partnership with its companion volume, The Literacy Labyrinth. The latter is available in a second edition in 2003 to complement this updated edition.
