Adolescent language and literacy development

Q

What functions does literacy play in the out-of-school lives of adolescents? To what extent are these functions currently reflected in the pedagogy, curriculum and assessment in high schools? How might ‘adolescent literacies’ be employed to advance the academic language and literacy development of young people at school? How and why should teachers scaffold literacy development across the school curriculum?
