Weaving the Cloth of Literacy: The Relationship between Braille and Reading.
Zago, P. A.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v90 n3 p274-76 May-Jun 1996
This brief article uses a weaving metaphor to address the relationship between braille and reading, with prior knowledge (the warp threads) interacting with reading content (the weft threads) by means of braille (the shuttle). Reading is seen to be an interactive process between reader, text, and the context of the reading situation. (DB)
