Double Power

"Double Power is a collection of articles about literacy, English and Indigenous Australians, both the practical and political aspects.

The title of this book, Double Power comes from the words of Mandawuy Yunupingu in describing his personal experience of becoming a person who is literate across two cultures.  Mandawuy Yunupingu argues persuasively that being literate in English has added to the resources he has at his disposal in negotiating with the dominant culture.

This book also includes case studies from a number of contexts.  These contexts vary in both their circumstances and their locations.  They include adult workplace literacy (Western Australia), literacy for adults in tertiary education (Northern Territory) and primary and secondary schooling (Arnhem Land and Central Australia).

All of these articles are written by practitioners with experience in the field and all of them document actual practice."
