Susan Sandretto and Jane Tilson

Teachers involved in New Zealand research conducted to develop forward-looking literacy pedagogy explained they needed ongoing support to make their new practices sustainable. This article responds to that request. We begin with a whistle-stop tour of the rapidly evolving literacy landscape, briefly reviewing key concepts of critical multiliteracies and the four resources model as we develop a rationale for the design of curriculum literacies.

Suggestions for collaborative curriculum literacies design conclude the discussion.
