Socio-Cultural Approaches to Literacy (Literacies).
Gee, James
Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, v12 p31-48 1991
Sociocultural approaches to literacy question several related assumptions inherited from the discipline of cognitive psychology, including the following: (1) thinking and speaking are functions of individual minds; (2) literacy is an individual mental skill involving the ability to read and write; and (3) intelligence, knowledge, and aptitude are states of individual minds.
