Enciso, Patricia – Literacy, 2019
Drawing on a multi-year qualitative study of immigrant and non-immigrant youth storytelling, I describe youth's imaginative labour as they constructed and moved into one another's worlds.

Barden, Owen – Literacy, 2019
This paper contributes a definition of "mobile literacy." This is worthwhile because although mobile, internet-enabled devices are increasingly prevalent in many people's lives, mobile literacy appears to be under-theorised and lacking definition. After giving an overview of the scale and nature of mobile device use, the paper develops…

In this study, we compared the types of texts found in two metropolitan areas (Santiago, Chile, and San Antonio, TX, USA) as a way of documenting the sponsorship of literacy within these two communities. We found (roughly) equal number of texts across the sites but interesting patterns within each. San Antonio's texts were primarily sponsored by…

Dobson, Tom; Stephenson, Lisa – Literacy, 2019
Set against the backdrop of children being 'alienated' from their writing, this paper is taken from a United Kingdom Literacy Association sponsored project where primary school teachers were trained to use process drama in order to give children more agency in their writing across the curriculum. Here, we use discourse analysis to think about the…

Satchwell, Candice – Literacy, 2019
How an author communicates with a reader is a central consideration in the critical examination of any text. When considering the communication of ideas from young people whose voices are seldom heard, the journey from author to audience has particular significance. The construction of children and young people as 'authors' is important,…

Westbrook, Jo; Sutherland, Julia; Oakhill, Jane; Sullivan, Susan – Literacy, 2019
Poorer adolescent readers are often regarded by teachers as unable to read whole narratives and given short, simplified texts, yet are expected to analyse every part in a slow laborious read-through. This article reports on a mixed methods study in which 20 English teachers in the South of England changed their current practice to read two whole…

In particular, it focuses on the tensions inherent in tasks which require more traditional textual analysis to be presented in ways other than traditional 'essay' format. These tasks are interpreted differently by…
