Description - Literacy in 3D by Bill Green
Literacy in 3D brings together an authoritative collection of essays by academics, policy makers and educators from across Australia, each drawing on Bill Green's influential `3D' model of literacy, pedagogy and practice. In section one Bill Green and Catherine Beavis focus on the three dimensional model itself, its `subject-specific' origins and the implications and challenges for literacy education in schools. They explore how the model has evolved since inception in 1988, to address a range of contexts and requirements in research, teacher education and schooling. Section two comprises accounts by theorists and practitioners of their actual work utilising the model, importantly articulating what it has enabled them to do. This includes adaptation and application across a range of subjects and contexts, traversing drama, media, ICT, school literacy, ESL and tertiary education online.The final section provides a focused reflection on these iterations of the model and considers future possibilities and developments. Literacy in 3D presents as a core framework for curriculum and pedagogy design, within the New Literacy Studies tradition. An up-to-date account of a long-established, overtly dynamic model, this important volume explores and engages with its integrated perspectives to emphasise contemporary cultural, critical and operational literacy dimensions. It is the quintessential resource for all literacy educators, researchers and practitioners, including teacher educators and those working in policy at various levels.
