So while I was fooling around one of my favorite sites, Wikipedia, I found a new definition of literacy. The definition that was on Wikipedia is Literacy is the ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate, compute and use printed and written materials associated with varying contexts. What do you think of this definition, does it hit at all of the things that we have talked about during this class.

I think it's actually a pretty good definition overall... but not necessarily in that order. I do agree that identify is first but then interpret then understand... the rest dont really matter what order they go though. Wiki is probably the best.
