Literate practices and identities matter, those of both students and their teachers. There is considerable research exploring the discursive construction of students’ literacy practices and identities and the discursively mediated identities of literacy and English teachers. As Moje and Luke (2009) note, how identity is viewed influences and is influenced by the way literacy is viewed. Teachers’ literate identities and conceptualisations of literacy shape what counts as literacy in their classrooms, but also frame, shape and often limit students’ identities, both as readers and as writers (Hall, 2012).
