About this title


This book is - in part - an introduction to research procedures that enable researchers and educators to identify and examine complex language and social practices enacted in young people's everyday lives. In the process, the actual lived experiences of four young adolescents in their final year of primary school are narrated, generating substantive content that speaks directly to the issues that lie behind this book: namely, what is the relationship between school learning and students' everyday lives, and what might an effective relationship between them look like? These questions are asked against a backdrop of national government pushes for literacy standards-setting and benchmarking in Australia and elsewhere.

About the Author:

The Author: Michele Knobel, Ph.D., is Lecturer in the School of Language and Literacy Education at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane. Her research interests lie chiefly in the area of young people's language and literacy practices, and in the field of electronic technologies. She has been published in a range of national and international journals, and has a number of book chapters - cowritten with Colin Lankshear - in Changing Literacies, Counternarratives, and Constructing Critical Literacies.
