  • Volume 26 Issue 2 - Education and 'new literacies' in the middle years
    • Abstract: Lankshear, Colin; Knobel, Michele
      As we move well into the 21st century, it is timely to revisit what 'new' might now mean and how such re-imagining should influence schooling. The authors argue that new literacy practices reflect a state of being rather than a curriculum as such. Through the shared or affinity spaces opened up with digital technologies, young people participate with like-minded others across a vast range of creative and purposeful activities. This embedded and deeply social approach to learning offers learners richly resourced knowledge and expertise. Considering four dimensions of an educational ideal, the authors then ask how schools can respond within a new literacies context. One shift is to move from the individual to collaborative approaches in the production of knowledge, working across disciplines and seeking expertise beyond school. The authors then describe three middle years' projects exemplifying how young people might negotiate challenging problems in engaged, ethical and critical ways.

  • Volume 26 Issue 2 - A response to 'education and "new literacies" in the
           middle years' by Colin Lankshear and Michele Knobel
    • Abstract: Ware, Kerrie
      Colin Lankshear and Michele Knobel's paper 'Education and "new literacies" in the middle years', makes a passionate, well supported and clearly argued case for a different approach in engaging our secondary students. They provide a clearly reasoned set of arguments as to why schools must move beyond the standard focus of curriculum to broader more 21st century literate approaches that tap into the social, research and cultural understanding of our students whilst allowing and encouraging the use of new technology that students feel connects them. The need to assist our students to operate collaboratively with communication skills, clearly defined research approaches and ethical awareness of self and others, will ensure they become contributors in a real sense to a global environment whilst using new 'literacies' appropriately and with purpose.

  • Volume 26 Issue 2 - Year 9 English: Developing as writers of narrative and
           persuasive texts
    • Abstract: Kerin, Rosie
      The current focus on high-stakes writing 'products' in primary and secondary English is largely due to the pressure of NAPLAN and the development of formal narrative and persuasive writing. Ironically, this has resulted in fewer opportunities for informal and low-stakes writing or playful analysis of diverse texts. Such opportunities to analyse and write freely remain crucial for young writers who need time to practise and experiment to develop their language, ideas, voice and confidence. The English unit documented here is based on the premise that students will build on their understanding and analysis of narrative and persuasive texts and play with the structures and features of these two text types in various modes. The intention is to develop their capacity to critique and create ideas for writing that is ongoing rather than a one-time product for assessment.

  • Volume 26 Issue 2 - A Minecraft-based response to 'New Literacies' in the
           Middle Years
    • Abstract: Elliott, David
      Lankshear and Knobel (2017) note that new literacy practices pivot education away from knowledge consumption and retention, towards a model which values production and distribution. They argue that 'young people learn to participate in such practices independently of formal education, and in many cases, importing versions of them into classroom learning may well kill students' interest in them and otherwise prove alienating'. This is an experience that many teachers are familiar with, as informal text practices that are introduced to the formal learning space, divorced from their original context, are interpreted as unwelcome or unnecessarily diluted by the formal demands of pedagogy and assessment. Teachers who are interested in designing a video game-based curriculum for the classroom spaceoften face these challenges, as they struggle to balance the rigours of the formal study environment with the ways that these games are informally experienced by their students. The study that I recently submitted as my PhD thesis involved the use of a popular video game, Minecraft, in a literacy classroom, and involved the development of a number of strategies for introducing informal text practices without diluting their cultural currency. In this response to Lankshear and Knobel (2017), I draw on examples from this study, and I argue that a strategy for reconciling some of these tensions might be found in a curriculum which embraces intratextual and paratextual authorship occurring through a commercial video game. This is an approach which mobilises the power of the 'new' literacies, while simultaneously encouraging students to engage in the kind of print text production that is a reality of contemporary assessment.

  • Volume 26 Issue 2 - Among (21st) century school children: The 'new
           literateurs' a response to 'new literacies' in the middle years
    • Abstract: Hayes, Terry
      After reading Lankshear and Knobel's key article, I think of all my grand kids as incipient or embryonic 'new literateurs'. Collectively, they tick all the criteria boxes, though there are obviously variants in the way they do so. They are technologically literate and use the technologies available to them creatively, enterprisingly, selectively and judiciously. They do not consume their technological wares uncritically. Interestingly, none of them are avid game players of the kind that Catherine Beavis and her colleagues have researched so assiduously.

  • Volume 26 Issue 2 - Reading by design: A longitudinal study of action
           research
    • Abstract: Hampton, Derek
      This paper explores the heuristics that relate to the improved reading outcomes of EAL/D (English as an Additional Language or Dialect) high school students for the critical engagement with texts. A case will be made for teacher-led action research as a powerful professional development tool. In addition to subscribing to mandatory codes of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) syllabus guidelines and learning outcomes, this longitudinal study reflects aspects of Bakhtin's (translated 1982) concept of 'dialogism' which is integral for learning and teaching processes. Utilising linguistic social theories of learning, this longitudinal case study explores the interrelated aspects of student peer and teacher relationships, learning styles, reading performance indicators and reading strategies over three years. Relevant for all teachers in mixed ability and multicultural classrooms, this study encourages us to become more intentional about expanding our understanding of the reading process and how this can lead to opportunities and ideas about classroom practices.

  • Volume 26 Issue 2 - Examining what it means to make 'text-to' connections
           with Year 5 and 6 students
    • Abstract: Mantei, Jessica; Fahy, Monique
      Reading pedagogy is filled with approaches, advice and frameworks recommended for teachers with the promise that they will support reading development and the making of meaning beyond the literal decoding of print. Often, these frameworks come with steps to follow, assessment materials and even products to purchase to ensure learning is achieved. But how often do we stop and reflect on their effectiveness in developing our learners' literacy capacities within and beyond the classroom' This article shares the experiences of beginning teachers as they examined the strengths and limitations of the 'text-to-self, text-to-text, text-to-world' framework to support the literacy development of Year 5 and 6 students. And it identifies some modifications to the framework with a view to developing students' knowledge about the world.

    • Abstract: Grant-Skiba, Dawn; Orwa, Jennifer Ongalo
      Current research confirms that it is becoming more and more difficult for teachers of middle high school students to engage them in their learning. English teachers often find it particularly challenging to engage Year 7 to 10 students in literacy, literature and language for a variety of reasons. This section of the journal provides practical, tried and tested 21st century strategies that teachers can use to engage students. Teachers will find the ready to use ideas are easily matched to achievement standards in the Australian Curriculum: English.

  • Volume 26 Issue 1 - Writing assessment using Brightpath
    • Abstract: Beaglehole, Velma
      Brightpath is an innovative writing assessment system that has been developed in Australia. Teachers compare student writing samples against calibrated exemplars and arrive at a scaled score. These pairwise comparisons promote reliable teacher judgements across teachers, schools and over time. The Brightpath tool can be used to make judgements about the quality of oral narratives, recounts, reports, narratives, persuasive writing and science investigations. The purpose of this paper is to report on Phase 1 of a trial using the narrative ruler in 65 South Australian primary schools. The outcome of this robust trial has implications for the teaching of writing and the fine-tuning of narrative writing assessments.

    • Abstract: See, Monica; Becker, Bonnie
      We've seen it all before: the red pen, the editing codes scrawled across the page, the contrived comment at the end. Yet, we cannot ignore the fact that, with the increased use of technology in the classroom, perhaps a change in the way we give students feedback is required. Teachers have tools at their disposal that allow them to provide extensive, meaningful and affirming individual feedback to enable students to persist, think flexibly, and remain open to continuous learning. This article explores the benefits of video feedback on both written and visual assessment drafts.

      This article describes the effort of one school to enhance student learning and to improve students' outcomes on both internal and external literacy assessments. Teachers focused on giving feedback as a necessary part of the learning process, using peer-to-peer, teacher-to-teacher and teacher-tostudent feedback. The approach has been extended to mathematics and to other schools.
