Systemic literacy initiatives: Stories of regulation, conflict and compliance
Ryan, Mary E (2005) Systemic literacy initiatives: Stories of regulation, conflict and compliance. Australian Journal of Language and Literacy, 28(2), pp. 114-126.
This paper problematises the Discourses surrounding systemic whole-school initiatives, and provides some insight into how one rural primary school is dealing with such change, through the development of positioned, fictional narratives from the key players. Systemic initiatives such as these, seek to go beyond structural or superficial change, rather the focus is on changing the ‘literacy culture’ of the school. Results from this project however, suggest that teachers in this context do not necessarily ‘buy into’ such change, so the problem of ‘imposed innovation’ without real pedagogical change has developed.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
