This book draws on original research and a language based pedagogy approach to examine how secondary schools in the UK can devise and implement coherent language and literacy across curriculum policies and strategies, so that grammar and associated metalanguage becomes an integral part of their day to day curriculum practices. The research was undertaken in three 11 to 18 secondary schools in England, where the majority of students are categorised as having English as a second language (EAL), and where a significant minority are also socially disadvantaged in two of the three. The author argues that paying explicit attention to the linguistic structures through which subject knowledge is realised can be of benefit to all pupils in ways that are also socially just and democratic. This book provides an important bridge between academic theory and educational practice that will appeal to applied linguists and sociolinguists, as well as to teachers, teacher trainers and practitioners.

There is an immensely important conjunction between literacy and Informationand Communications Technology (ICT). This book considers the application ofICT in raising and widening literacy achievements within the classroom, andexplores ways that ICT can be harnessed to help students develop their literacyskills. Teaching Secondary School Literacies with ICT supports educators in this aimby offering creative examples of good practice. It provides commentary andresearch into what adolescent students are doing, both in formal educationand socially, with regard to ICT and literacy, including: Computer mediated communication Literacy implications of computer games and chatrooms Parents and children using the internet at home, and the implicit literacy skillsinvolved Several contributors provide useful insights into the debate around teenageliteracy cultures and literacy in schools. For example, in schools, word processingand keyboard skills are valued; yet thumb-controlled technologies (games con-soles, texting) are denigrated. This book argues that if we are to encourage pupilsto develop the literacy skills they need for the 21st century, we need a morepositive and creative response to these popular forms of literacy. This inspiring book is key reading for trainee and practising teachers, literacyadvisers and policy makers. Moira Monteith is an educational consultant. She was previously a principallecturer in ICT in Education at Sheffield Hallam University, and before thata teacher. Her previous publications include ICT in the Primary School(Open University Press, 2002).

Constructions of Literacy explores and represents, through a series of cases and commentaries, how and why secondary school teachers and students use literacy in formal and informal learning settings. As used in the context of this book, secondary literacy refers to speaking, listening, reading, writing, and performing. It also refers to how these processes or events are constructed, negotiated, and used for specific purposes by teachers and students as they engage in various classroom, school, and community practices and interactions. The authors operate from a stance that literacy is socially, culturally, and historically constructed. They recognize that there are many different perspectives on how that construction occurs--some arguing for institutional and structural influences--others suggesting that people have some degree of agency within the constraints imposed by larger structures. A distinguishing feature of the volume is that the contributors explore and make explicit differing perspectives on literacy as a social construction. The volume is built around case studies of secondary school teachers' and students' literacy practices inside and outside of schools. The cases include diverse (critical, cultural, feminist, interpretive, phenomenological, and postmodern) theoretical and epistemological perspectives and research methodologies, making this one of the first collections of studies in secondary content area classrooms conducted from multiple perspectives. It concludes with two Commentaries, one by Donna Alvermann and one by David Bloome, in which they discuss and critique the contributions made from the different perspectives and grapple with how they simultaneously illuminate and confuse issues in literacy theory, research, and practice. Preservice and in-service teachers, school professionals, and researchers in literacy education, secondary education, and curriculum theory will find this book stimulating and informative. It will help them analyze the complexities of secondary literacy teaching and learning, and examine their own understandings of literacy within their own literacy contexts.
