Privilege, Privation, and the Ethnography of Literacy.
Language Arts, v81 n1 p10-11 Sep 2003
Considers how the concept of "literacy," especially intensified by the current conservative political climate, has been falsely reified as a clearly distinct "thing" that can be taught and tested in simple and standardized ways. Identifies literacy competencies as "subrosa literacy" and describes detailed performances of these abilities (including a variety of decoding and comprehension skills) noted by teachers as deficient in the same students.
