Literacy Shift

Literacy Shift

Here’s an image that popped in my head on the way to school today.  I was thinking about how textual literacy has gained ever-increasing status in school as students advance and how I couldn’t think of any good reason why it should hold on to that supremacy, especially given its exclusivity and exclusionary power over so many students.  This from an English teacher, y’all.

And by the way, when I say that it popped in my head, I really mean I suspect I saw it somewhere else drawn by someone else.  If you can lead me in that direction, I’d appreciate ya.  Dan Roam, maybe?  Lynda Barry?  Dave Gray?

“Image” above could also be replaced with music or the arts.
