Abstract

This paper explores the development of student literacy, which involves more than merely acquiring surface language skills and becoming orientated within the university - but requires the deeper 'academic literacies' approach (Mary Lea and Brian Street (1998)). This views student writing at the level of epistemology and identities, implying a need to recognise the subjective experience of students and the effects on their self-image/esteem of having to master the linguistic conventions that they are required to employ across disciplines and modules.
