Imaginative and attractive, cutting edge in its conception, this text explicates a model for the integration of language arts and literacy education based on the notion of framing. Framing as a unifying principle derives from the frames used in the visual and performing arts, and is also a concept that has been used in sociology. The act of framing -- not frames in themselves -- provides a creative and critical approach to English as a subject. Re-framing Literacy: Offers an authoritative, clear guide to a complex field Breaks new ground in the language arts/literacy field, integrating arts-based and sociologically-based conceptions of the subject Is internationally relevant -- the concept of framing does not align itself to a particular culture or language but is generally applicable to thinking about communications arts in a number of languages and cultures. The theory of rhetoric described in this book and which provides its overarching theory is dialogic, political and liberating. Pedagogically, the text works inductively, from examples up toward theory: starting with visuals and moving back and forth between text and image; exploring multimodality; and engaging in the transformations of text and image that are at the heart of learning in English and the language arts. Structured like a teaching course, designed to excite and involve readers and lead them toward high-level and useful theory in the field, Re-framing Literacy is widely appropriate for pre-service and in-service courses globally in English and language arts education.
