Literacy Learning in an Educational Context in Cyprus
My research investigates how Greek-Cypriot children construct knowledge as they participated in school- based activities in a sociolinguistic context that is characterised by the existence of two forms of language - Standard Modern Greek (official language) and the Greek-Cyprus dialect. It also examines the bilingual literacy landscape in Cyprus (i.e. the wider context) and the particular way in which the literacy development of students (with and without dyslexia-type literacy difficulties) is constructed in this context. The study is based in my own classroom in Cyprus and uses ethnography as its methodology.
