What Do We Mean by Literacy Now?
Harste, Jerome C.
Voices from the Middle, v10 n3 p8-12 Mar 2003
Suggests that instead of thinking about literacy as an entity, thinking about literacy as social practice can be revolutionary. Argues that rather than think in terms of phonics, spelling, and grammar, it is helpful to think about what kinds of literacy one needs in order to read things critically. Discusses multiple literacies, literacy as a social practice, meaning-making, language study, and inquiry-based learning. (SG)
