This book provides a comprehensive overview of approaches to academic literacy instruction and their underpinning theories, as well as a synthesis of the debate on academic literacy over the past 20 years. It is argued that the main existing instructional models are inadequate to cater for diverse student populations. An inclusive practice approach is proposed which encourages institutional initiatives that make literacy instruction an integrated and accredited part of the curriculum. The book aims to raise awareness of existing innovative literacy pedagogies and argues for the transformation of academic literacy instruction in all universities with diverse student population.
