Abstract [en]

The autonomous and the ideological model of literacy, and their tentative effects on teachers´ practices as well as on research will be discussed in this article, thus emphasizing the need for teaching children not only to read the word, but also the world. Cases where the possibility of implementing critical awareness from the very start of children´s literacy trajectory is neglected will be discussed with reference to the Four Resources Model for literacy. The need of holistic perspectives in order to reject deficit discourses will be explicated. Finally the role of teacher education will be briefly illuminated.  In the concluding comments the need for both practitioners and researchers to pay attention to the ideological model for literacy is stated.
