The quintessential resource for all literacy educators, and researchers, Literacy in 3D brings together a collection of essays by academics, policy makers and educators from across Australia, each drawing on Bill Green's influential '3D' model of literacy, pedagogy and practice.
Literacy in 3D presents as a core framework for curriculum and pedagogy design, within the New Literacy Studies tradition. An up-to-date account of a long-established, overtly dynamic model, this important volume explores and engages with its integrated perspectives to emphasise contemporary cultural, critical and operational literacy dimensions.
Bill Green and Catherine Beavis explore how the model has evolved since its inception in 1988, to address a range of contexts and requirements in research, teacher education and schooling.
Section one focuses on the three dimensional model, its subject-specific origins and the implications and challenges for literacy education in schools.
Section two comprises accounts by theorists and practitioners of their actual work utilising the model, articulating what it has enabled them to do (including adaptation and application across a range of subjects).
Section three provides a focused reflection on these iterations of the model and considers future possibilities and developments.
Bill Green developed the 3D model of literacy, which has been in use for more than 25 years. He is Professor of Education and Strategic Research Professor at Charles Sturt University.
Catherine Beavis is a Professor of Education in the School of Education and Professional Studies at Griffith University.
