Multiliteracies for addressing disadvantage in senior school science (LP160100263)

This project develops and refines a pedagogy focused around multi literacy representation construction, to engage students in science learning in the senior school years. The approach combines Tytler’s representation construction research with a significant research program in Structural Functional Linguistics in the context of the constrained senior science curriculum context, for learners in low SES settings.
