Literacies Across Media: Playing the Text

by Margaret Mackey

2nd Edition
The contemporary young reader learns from a very early age to read and interpret through a broad range of media. Literacies Across Media explores how a group of boys and girls, aged from 10 – 14, make sense of narratives in a variety of formats, including print, electronic book, video, DVD, computer game and CD-ROM. Margaret Mackey analyses how the activities of reading, viewing and playing intertwine and affect each other’s development. The study breaks new ground in its illustration and exploration of the impact of cross-media fertilization on how young readers come to an understanding of how to make sense of stories. It is thought-provoking, fascinating and highly informative reading not only for theoreticians interested in the reading process but also teachers, librarians, parents and anybody involved with young people and their texts.
