New Literacies and the English Curriculum by Len Unsworth

Book Description

In an age where the use of electronic media is expanding and replacing traditional text-based learning, new literacies are becoming increasingly important in the school classroom. This volume examines how new literacies can be used in the English curriculum, and presents a series of research-based studies applied to every level of school-age education. The chapters examine: early literacy; picture books; the internet; secondary school English; and, the problems of assessment in the new literacy age.This forward-thinking volume will be of interest to academics researching applied linguistics, and social semiotic theory.
