Critical literacy and the SACE Literacy Strategy

Paul Sommer
Paul Sommer worked as the Literacy Project Officer in the Senior Secondary Assessment Board of South Australia (SSABSA) during the first half of 2005.
This week Curriculum Leadership publishes the second and concluding part of the article 'What do we mean by critical? Implications and opportunities presented by the new SACE Literacy Strategy'. Part one, featured in last week's edition, examined critical literacy as a disposition and in relation to social purposes. Part two examines critical approaches as a framework through which to view, define and practise literacy.
