This comprehensive textbook introduces readers to the most influential theories and models of reading and literacy, ranging from behaviourism and early information-processing theories to social constructionist and critical theories.

Focusing on how these theories connect with different curricular approaches to literacy instruction (preschool to Year 12), the author shows how they both shape and are shaped by everyday literacy practices in classrooms. Readers are invited to explore detailed vignettes that offer a practice-based view of theories as they are brought to life in the classroom.

Unlike other books on literacy theories, this one devotes substantial attention to linguistically and culturally diverse classrooms and 21st-century technologies.
