Abstract

Across the globe, children have been away from schools and their teachers, but literacy learning has continued. In many countries, children’s literacy proficiency is often measured against high-stakes assessment tests. However, such tests do not make visible children’s literacy lives away from formal learning settings and thus children are positioned as task-responders, rather than as agentive readers and writers. This article explores the fluidity and diversity of literacy events and practices for students, children and their teachers observed during the recent period of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
