PEDAGOGIES AND DIVERSITY
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.
