SAGE/UKLA series

This series (new in 2006) is aimed at teachers, researchers, students and colleagues in higher education. These books link theory firmly with practice, providing overviews of current thinking with suggestions about approaches to practice. The first books in the series indicate the range: Phonics: Practice, research and policy edited by Maureen Lewis and Sue Ellis (2006) addresses the current and continuing debate about teaching reading, drawing together a range of views from the UK and abroad. The second, Visual Approaches to Teaching Writing by Eve Bearne and Helen Wolstencroft (2007) is set in the context of recent developments in bringing multimodality into the literacy curriculum, providing practical guidance for planning and teaching and is accompanied by a CDROM. Jackie Marsh and Elaine Hallet revised and reprinted Desirable Literacies: Approaches to Language and Literacy in the Early Years as part of the series and the most recent is Digital Literacies: Social Learning and Classroom Practices edited by Victoria Carrington and Muriel Robinson. These examples show the flexibility of the series where there is no set format, but an emphasis on the principled relationship between literacy theory and practice. The series is ideal for prospective authors who want to tackle up-to-the-minute issues in an accessible way.
