Summary

In this edited volume, Whitmore and Meyer bring together top literacy scholars from around the world to discuss the role of literacy as a manifestation of meaning-making in reading, writing, drawing, speaking, and playing. Emerging from a rich, progressive scholarship, the volume lays out a clear discourse of meaning-making in literacies, and shifts the conversation away from treating literacies as commodities and towards an understanding of literacies as an active, engaged process by which learners compose and develop their own expressions of agency. Organized by five pillars of literacy—teaching, learning, language, curriculum, and sociocultural contexts—each section covers critical and cutting-edge topics in literacy and offers examples, tools and strategies for practical applications in classroom settings.
