i'm in a ranting kind of mood...can you tell??
okay, so here is my issue with this whole "literacies" thing. it seems to me that we are, in some cases, blurring the lines between literacy and skills. let me illustrate my point for you: Are these all literacies or are they skills? 1. knowing how to read a book. 2. knowing how to navigate the internet. 3. knowing how to blog. 4. knowing how to drive a car. I don't know, it just seems to me that we want to call everything a literacy and i don't think that it is. thoughts??
