International Handbook of Research on Children's Literacy, Learning and Culture / Edition 1

The International Handbook of Research in Children's Literacy, Learning and Culture presents a careful distillation of the current research in the field of primary years literacy studies. Well known contributors critically review and synthesize seminal studies on various themes, offer fresh perspectives and conceptualizations, and point to new directions for further investigation and study. Chapters vividly illustrate the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary educational thinking and research on literacy by offering perspectives from a wide range of disciplines—from aesthetics and anthropology to cultural psychology and curriculum theory.

Literacy topics are addressed in three sections, namely ‘society, culture, and community’, ‘school, culture, and pedagogy’, and ‘teachers, culture, and identity’. In presenting cutting-edge knowledge on all aspects of literacy learning in the primary/elementary school years, the International Handbook of Research in Children's Literacy, Learning and Culture provides an essential resource for scholars, educators, and researchers in charting the future of the increasingly important field of literacy in the 21st century.
