New Avenues to Literacy.
Cairney, Trevor H.
Educational Leadership, v54 n6 p76-77 Mar 1997
Being truly literate means being able to navigate the multiple sign systems of our world--to respond appropriately to an e-mail message or to convey meaning to others through images and text. Instead of relying on written narrative texts, teachers must develop inquiry-based methods, using experiential learning projects, oral storytelling, film and video, and drawings, dramatizations, and reading/writing strategies.
