Strengthen your teaching skills to help children develop their essential literacy abilities.

Language is at the heart of what we do, how we live and the ways we learn. Teaching Language in Context explores how an explicit understanding of how language works can help you make informed choices in your teaching. Written by leading Australian experts in a functional approach to literacy, it equips you with the knowledge to refine your own literacy capacities and develop the skills and strategies you need to support your students in meeting the challenges of learning to critically read and compose texts.

The third edition includes essential updates and revisions focused on recent developments in research and teaching. New content explores the use of language for responding, poetry in teaching language, and the use of imagery to explain different forms of multi-modal texts across various curriculum areas. With the inclusion of ‘Think about it’ and ‘Have a go!’ activities to help you reflect on your learning and familiarise yourself with language features, Teaching Language in Context will strengthen your language skills for the evolving learning space.

New to This Edition
  • A new chapter exploring poetry in teaching language, an area that can typically be quite challenging to teach.

  • The text is focused on practical use of theory, providing suggestions for lesson plans and how you can make the most of your teaching.
  • Designed as an invaluable resource for you to use throughout your study and in your professional life.
