~READ EPUB ♫ Literacy: A Critical Sourcebook ☢ This New Collection Of Both Landmark And Current Essays Provides A Comprehensive Overview Of The Major Themes And Questions That Shape Literacy Studies Today Literacy A Critical Sourcebook Is An Indispensable Reference Tool For Anyone Interested In The Field Of Literacy Studies And Ideally Suited For Use In A Wide Range Of Upper Division And Graduate Classes I haven t read it all, as this is an anthology, but I ve probably read about half of it now It s extremely useful for getting a nice overview to be able to historically situate various discourses around literacy The literacy ethnographies were most interesting to me. This is the driest, most boring reader I ve ever laid my hands on Every article seemingly can only ask 2 questions Is it a technology Is it a literacy The authors of these articles seem to think every competency known to man can be called a literacy.I mean outdoor literacy Really Changing a tire literacy Wearing underpants literacy.I m barely exaggerating I m truly sorry if you have to read this in your seminars. I you study critical literacy, you should probably have this book on your shelf There s a good amount of theoretical stuff in there that s great for a foundational understanding of critical literacy With that being said, this book was hard to get through The material is a little dense, but there s good information in here. This is an exceptional anthology I will always go back to it as I have been doing for the past 6 months Ok, so I admit that I learned a lot from reading this But it seriously kicked my butt It was hard to revert back to academic reading, particularly in an English graduate class Let s face it, nothing in education classes is all that difficult It is a thorough collection of literacy studies and practices, and for that, I am grateful And I read skimmed it well enough to score an A on my first paper Woo hoo
