Ways of acquiring and using reading and writing vary from culture to culture, from context to context. People are informally socialised into the local, culture-specific literacy practices of the families and communities in which they are immersed (Auerbach, 1999, Gee, 1996). Many Indigenous Australian students are required to develop the ability to culturally code switch (Malcolm, ) in order to engage in tertiary academic literacies because of a lack of exposure to the culture-specific immersions of academia.
