Joan was interested in a model of context that could be used with teachers to inform literacy teaching, and our collaboration with Christie led to the development of Australia’s distinctive genre-based literacy programs in primary and secondary schools, alongside adult ESL and tertiary EAP programs developed by colleagues trained in the same Applied Linguistics program (Christie 1992; Martin 1993a; Cope and Kalantzis 1993; Hasan and Williams 1996; Rothery 1996; Hyon 1996; Martin 1998). During the early 80s Joan and I worked closely with postgraduate students in the Department, most of whose concerns lay outside education (Suzanne Eggins, Chris Nesbitt, Guenter Plum, Lynn Poulton, Cate Poynton, Anne Thwaite and Eija Ventola); we met weekly over a period of two years, looking at ways of modelling a range of registers, including casual conversation (Eggins and Slade 1997), spoken narrative (Martin and Plum 1997) service encounters (Ventola 1987), doctor/patient consultations and so on.

Many years ago, when I was still a language teacher, teaching Chinese at Cambridge University in England, I used to teach a class of scientific Chinese to a group of Cambridge scientists. They wanted to read scientific texts written by Chinese scholars: one was a plant geneticist, interested in Chinese work on hybridization, one was a mathematician, one was a psychologist, and so on. Now, they had no interest in Chinese culture in the traditional sense of the term; it wasn’t necessary for me to teach them anything about Chinese history or family life, or about filial piety or other Confucian values.
