MetadataShow full item record
The place of literature is alive and evident in the Australian Curriculum: English. Whilst literature is more often considered as those texts that use aesthetic language and have enduring artistic value, literature is becoming increasingly electronic. Electronic literature or e-literature, which may include more contemporary popular texts, is acknowledged in the curriculum, but what opportunities do they offer for developing literary literacy? This article will provide an analysis of The Infinity Ring book series, which is an electronically augmented literary text published by Scholastic, for its affordances and constraints for developing literary literacy for upper primary and lower secondary.
