Due to COVID restrictions, the UKLA team is working from home. This is a challenging time for us all, so your patience is very much appreciated.

UKLA Viewpoints: Critical Literacy

  • Critical literacy examines the relationship between language, literacy and power.
  • Teaching and learning about critical literacy recognises that texts reflect the position of the writer and aim also to position the reader.
  • Critical literacy means evaluating and analysing texts to identify the choices made in constructing texts, the worldviews they represent and the social impact of those texts.

You can download the full UKLA Viewpoint on critical literacy to the right of this page.
