Literacy has traditionally been associated with the linguistic and functional ability to read and write. Today, however, we have moved away from this perception to a more complex and multivalent definition that introduces new literacies that prepare students to reach their full potential in the 21st century (Lankshear & Knobel, 2011). This edited volume will focus on literacy in diverse and multilingual settings in education. Although literacy, as a fundamental issue in education, has received abundant attention in the last few decades, the majority of publications to date have focused on monolingual classrooms.
This book aims to explore the multifaceted nature of literacy development across the lifespan in a range of multilingual contexts. Chapters will be grounded in current research, demonstrating theory-practice connections as demonstrated through innovations in pedagogy, curriculum and materials design, and teacher education. In addition, we hope to offer unique perspectives through a critical reflection on issues related to power, ownership, identity, and the social construction of literacy in multilingual societies.
