Sample text

One of us was struck during a recent visit to India how rural women in a literacy class were quite comfortable using their chalk to write on the floor and on the walls of the building, in ways that would be considered offensive in the classrooms we occupy in London. Whatever our personal opinions of these practices, we are pushed by the analyses to perhaps review our assumptions about what counts as ‘literacy’, where the boundaries are defined both in terms of what surfaces are appropriate to ‘write’ on and more broadly what meanings are attached to the concept.

A good starting point might be the shelves of newsagents where teen and specialist magazines abound, to consider the ways in which such material is indicative of the ‘literacy’ engagement of readers who in other contexts may be considered poor readers or even, on the basis of formal schooled tests of their ‘reading’, as ‘illiterate’. g. Kress and van Leeuwen 1996, 2001) that locates written production in the context of other modes – visual, oral, kinaesthetic etc. Again does your list of key terms in literacy have to adjust to take account of this phenomenon?

Whatever response we make, it is apparent that we cannot ignore such findings. As we shall see below, for many researchers the rejection of the ‘literacy thesis’ does not necessarily mean that we should abandon or reduce work in literacy programmes in or out of school: but it does force us to be clearer as to what justifications we use for such work and how we should conduct it. The next section shows how new theoretical perspectives, themselves growing from the debates outlined previously, have proposed a way of continuing to pursue productive work in the literacy field without the ‘myths’, overstatements and doubtful bases for action of some of the earlier positions.
