Since this is a class on literacy, we should take a minute to reflect on what literacy is. This post has two parts:
1. You’ve probably heard the word literacy used many, many times before, but–before you started this class–what did you think it meant?
2. Please consider the infographic above. It is not the Absolute Defining Truth of Literacy, but it is a record of common ways that literacy gets described in society. What does this infographic have to do with Gee’s idea of a Discourse Community? How does it relate to Baker’s idea of Trilingualism? What questions does it bring up for you about what literacy really is? There is no right answer here–this is thinking person’s question, so put on your thinking cap. (And I hope you’re well-rested as you read this, otherwise this is a very peppy, very annoying statement ;).
