Hazel Bryan, Jo Westbrook

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Taking account of this, the chapter argues that schools are increasingly in a position to generate their own definitions of literacy, ones which will engage all staff, pupils and parents, and which are based on ‘best practice’ as this is derived from legislation, teachers’ expertise and the needs of society.
