    • + Finding a focus article  The article must be relevant to literacy studies.  The article must be a peer-reviewed and formally published research article.  Ideally published within the past 5 years.  You need to be truly interested in the focus of the article. Focus must be good and “meaty”  The focus of your article needs to have a prior history of research (i.e., be part of a research area or field)  Your final paper must engage with debates, present an argument, and include critique (your group needs to take a theorised position and you’ll be reading well beyond your focus article)
