First Published in 1996. Gender, Literacy, Curriculum is a major contribution to research and theory in literacy and curriculum studies. Alison Lee looks at how the texts and discourses of schooling construct 'geography' as a curriculum field, and how this construction is tied closely with students' gendered identities and practices in the classroom. She brings together discourse analyses of research texts, textbooks, classroom talk, students' and teachers' accounts, with a detailed linguistic analysis of students' written work. This title is of particular interest to those working in literacy education and curriculum, discourse analysis and applied linguistics, feminisms and critical pedagogies.

Why are girls outperforming boys in literacy skills in the Western education system today? To date, there have been few attempts to answer this question. Literacy and Gender sets out to redress this state of affairs by re-examining the social organization of literacy in primary schools. In studying schooling as a social process, this book focuses on the links between literacy, gender and attainment, the role school plays in producing social difference and the changing pattern of interest in this topic both within the feminist community and beyond. Gemma Moss argues that the reason for girls’ relative success in literacy lies in the structure of schooling and in particular the role the reading curriculum plays in constructing a hierarchy of learners in class. Using fine-grained ethnographic analysis of reading in context, this book outlines methods for researching literacy as a social practice and understanding how different versions of what counts as literacy can be created in the same site.

The author confronts issues in literacy attainment, early literacy learning and transitions to formal schooling with a case study from Malta.

Drawing on empirical research, the book traces the impact of foundational ideas of gender and early childhood, and makes practical recommendations to help young children experience socially just literacy education. This timely text will be highly relevant for researchers, educators and policymakers in the fields of literacy education, early childhood education, postcolonial education and children’s rights.
