about this item

The professional learning framework this book presents is designed to support teachers’ understandings of how language functions in their acaemic disciplines. This framework— a 4x4 metalinguistic toolkit—is informed by systemic functional linguistic theory and international educational research on academic and disciplinary literacies. In its focus on disciplinary literacies in diverse socio-cultural settings, the volume responds to contemporary international curricula for English language and literacy and the need for a strong evidence base for professional learning design. The book shows and explains how teachers have applied specific 4x4 toolkits with middle years students across a range of subjects for curriculum literacy instruction, assessment, and feedback, resulting in substantial growth for their students in high-stakes national tests of literacy as well as writing assessments in a number of subjects.
