In doing so, it addresses what digital litera...

Abstract Identity studies in education are germane to interpreting how adolescent writers perceive their lives, culture, and, in literacy, their schooling and educational goals. Positioning theory analysis helps reveal both tacit and explicit patterns of meaning making as authors collaborate and craft creative writing artifacts shared as blog posts.
