The Importance of the Act of Reading.
Freire, Paulo
Journal of Education, v165 n1 p5-11 Win 1983
The act of reading is more than decoding written language, and should be seen as a development process that leads to understanding of actual experiences and the real world. Reading involves critical perception, interpretation, and the conscious transformation of what is read into practical action to change the world. (Author/MJL)
