Description - Reflecting on Literacy in Education by Peter Hannon
Literacy has become central to debates on policy and practice in education in the UK and other English speaking countries. This text introduces teachers to the ways in which literacy, and its place in education, is being re-thought in the late 1990s, from many different perspectives, including those of psychology, sociology, linguistics, politics and history. The book introduces ideas, and relates practical and policy concerns to an understanding of theoretical issues. Concise and accessible, it should connect aspects of the experience of professionals and students alike, and provide suggestions for further reading, and issues for group discussion or individual study.
