dc.description.abstract In explaining the importance of critical literacy, this commentary suggests what teachers need to be able to do - essential ‘repertoires of practice’ (Comber, 2006). These include making connections with students’ lives, enabling them to do the necessary research, exploring texts and practices, considering the social effects of texts and practices and imagining possibilities for making a positive difference. These ideas are illustrated with an extended classroom example. en_ZA
