Literacy as a performing art refers to the act of representing and interpreting text, the transforming of thought to oral interpretation. This aesthetic perspective of experiencing reading is missing in many classrooms today and thus, reading is becoming a lost art. Students are expected to apply specific literacy techniques rather than use their imagination to enact text. Instead, students must be cultivated in educational atmospheres where their learning becomes enriched through the dramatic reading process, allowing each to develop in meaningful ways and see through multiple perspectives.
