Semantics as a resource for teaching critical literacy
Reports are important genres in our culture and they have achieved some prominence in education. What it means to report and the way reporting is conceived in our culture can be revealed through semantic analysis. By looking at the meaning of the verb report, this paper will argue for a view of genre as a cultural activity and a view of literacy that involves children in the development of personal perspective. This approach argues against a text based view of genre and a pedagogy that relies primarily on the modelling of ‘considered texts’.
