Abstract

This article is written in the context of English literacy, opening the terrain for new debates about the relationship between English and literacy, and offers a brief discussion of different viewpoints and research-based notions of curriculum literacies. The author examines English literacies in terms of: identifying competing constructions of English, showing how they have implications for what is understood by literacy-English relationship; challenging assumptions about what is meant by the term literacy and interaction with the curriculum; engaging reading in consideration of English literacies; proposing a new framework for exploring English literacies in classroom practice; and re-asserting the centrality of English curriculum in schooling.
