Symbols, Literacy and Social Justice

A new internationally focused book about symbols and literacy.

Symbols, Literacy and Social Justice

Review from education.guardian.co.uk

Symbols, Literacy and Social Justice looks at the role of symbols in supporting access to literacy, learning and information. It argues that such access is essential to social justice.

The book is in two parts. The first part, Symbols in use: supporting literacy and social justice is a set of 26 case studies from around the world, identified with the help of ISAAC. The second part, Understanding symbol literacy practices: towards social inclusion, draws together the issues that are raised in the case studies.

Like its predecessors Symbols, Literacy and Social Justice is written in an informal style. This means that it is appropriate for parents and carers as well as professionals. It introduces the fundamental ideas for newcomers to the field, but raises questions and discussion for the experienced practitioner.
