"The Literacy Lexicon" is designed with a twofold purpose: as a book of readings in critical literacy, and as a supporting reader to The Literacy Labyrinth written by Michele Anstey and Geoff Bull. Each of the chapters is written by leading theorists, many of them Australian, and explore in-depth issues about the nature and origins of language and literacy. It is intended that the reader construct their own views from the wide-ranging discussion provided "by The Literacy Lexicon." The Literacy Lexicon has four parts: Foundations, Knowledge, Application and Implementation. The foundations part contains chapters which explore sociological, philosophical, linguistic and sociocultural origins of language and literacy. This part forms the background of the succeeding parts exploring language and literacy pedagogy, application of such knowledge to the classroom and the issues which impinge on the implementation of language and literacy pedagogy.
