Doing Critical Literacy—A Global Conversations in Literacy Research Webinar

September 15, 2013

Dr. Janks is an internationally recognized scholar who has written and presented widely in the area of critical literacy, and travels extensively across the world presenting on critical literacy. Her most recent publication, and the focus of this webinar, Doing Critical Literacy: Text and Activities for Students and Teachers (with Kerryn Dixon, Ana Ferreira, Stella Granville, and Denise Newfield) demonstrates how teachers at all levels can support and do critical literacy in the classroom and provides models for practice that can be adapted to any context.

The National Writing Project is proud to support Global Conversations in Literacy Research (GCLR), a series of interactive web seminars that feature cutting-edge literacy research conducted by international literacy researchers. GCLR is grounded in critical literacy, and, like the National Writing Project, sees as its mission to use new and emerging technologies to connect global audiences in an exchange of ideas on literacy theory, research, and practice through free and open access to webinars.
