Is literacy everyone's business? A case study exploring the enactment of a whole-school preparatory to Year 12 common language approach to literacy education
Hovelroud, Lauren A. (2016) Is literacy everyone's business? A case study exploring the enactment of a whole-school preparatory to Year 12 common language approach to literacy education. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
At a time when literacy is purportedly everyone’s business, the study’s focus was on one Queensland Preparatory to Year 12 metropolitan state college as a case study site for a practitioner-based inquiry. The study explored teachers’ reported understandings of literacy and their experiences in enacting a whole-school common language approach to literacy. The findings identified some consistencies in their prioritisation of and commitments to literacy, representing just some of the complexities involved in a whole-school approach. Further contestations revealed different definitions and understandings of literacy and the challenges surrounding cross-curriculum implementation, which have future implications for teachers, educators, administrators and policy-makers.

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.
