Reading Across A Dozen Literacies
Jamie McKenzie writes on his blog : "We need a broadened conception of reading to capture the many different types of reading that occur when considering information in different formats across different media. As mentioned in the companion piece to this article ("Reading Between the Lines"), students must now be able to "read a face" as well as a page, must be able to read a photograph or a chart or a situation. Reading as understanding applies to many aspects of life."
