Sandretto_CoverUniversity of Otago College of Education lecturers Dr Jane Tilson and Dr Susan Sandretto have launched a new book Integrating critical multiliteracies using the Four Resources Model: A New Zealand Guide.

As a resource for teachers who want to encompass a broader view of literacy, it features video, reflective questions, discussion starters and support materials.

It will help teachers support their students to strengthen skills of code breaking, making meaning and using, constructing and critically analysing a wide range of texts in many different contexts.

Lisa Smith, Dean of the University of Otago College of Education, stated that this book “will certainly become a must-have for teachers and teacher educators as we move into the 21st century of all that is literacy”.

The book has been published by NZCER and can be found here
