Reading as Situated Language: A Sociocognitive Perspective.
Gee, James Paul
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v44 n8 p714-25 May 2001
Situates reading within a broad perspective that integrates work on cognition, language, social interaction, society, and culture. Argues that reading and writing cannot be separated from speaking, listening, and interacting, on the one hand, or using language to think about and act on the world, on the other. Introduces "social languages" as a relevant aspect to learning literacy. (SG)
