Literacy: Developing the Future
This volume expands on existing research in literacy and African-American education, and discusses a range of literacy issues confronting African-American and other youth in and out of school.
The chapters in this revised edition range from childhood to adult literacy, bilingualism to anthropological approaches, and include both Third World and industrialized perspectives. This volume considers the importance of cultural context in considering the future of literacy.
Literacy is thought to be one of the primary cultural transmitters of information and beliefs within any society where it exists. Yet, when considered as a social phenomenon, literacy is remarkably difficult to define, because its functions, meanings, and methods of learning vary from one cultural group to the next. This book compares and contrasts our understanding of literacy and its acquisition and retention.
