  1. 1. Approaches to Literacy
  2. 2. School’s analysis• Identify the type of bilingual program the school has• Based on your view, determine if the school could actually be bilingual or not, considering: – Mision and vision – Rationale (reasons to be bilingual) – Language development – Type of bilingualism – Relationship: language and content – Language policies for the bilingual development

  4. 4. “Illiteracyembodies a language and a setof practices that underscore the need fordeveloping a radical theory of literacy thattakes seriously the task of uncovering howparticular forms of social and moralregulation produce a culture of ignoranceof stupidity crucial to the silencing of allpotencially critical voices” Aronowitz
  5. 5. •Functional literacy•Critical literacy
  6. 6. Functional literacy• Develops skills (writing – reading)• Addresses issues of social purposes in contexts of use• Defines the uses of reading and writing to achieve social purposes in contexts of use• Teaches participants to achieve their social objectives• Accepts means of communication as something given and natural• Admits the natural status of dominant institutions and social discourses• Helps individuals function within a given society in order to participate and achieve their own goals
  7. 7. Critical literacy• Questions the natural status of dominant institutions and discourses• Deals with finding out how something works• Looks below the surface of things and events, asking questions such as: 1. Why does this exist/happen? 2. What is its purpose? 3. Whose interests does it serve? 4. Whose interests does it frustate? 5. How does it operate? 6. Need it operate like this or could it be done differently and better?• Gives powerful tools for developing critical thinking• Conceives language as a powerful social practice• Develops a critical awareness of social purpose and whose interests are being served by it• Regards critical reflection as a dimension that must be complemented with action

It also categorizes people into educational haves and have-nots• Being in the have-not group creates what Freire calls “a culture of silence”• Illiteracy implies a form of political and intellectual ignorance as well as a possible instance of class, gender, racial, or cultural resistance.

  18. 18. Critical pedagogy• Student’s voice must be heard• Students need to be introduced to a language of empowerment and radical ethics• Teachers should provide students with the opportunity to interrogate different languages or ideological discourses• Critical educators are also learners• Students and teachers can dialogue and struggle together in order to make their respective positions heard out/inside the classrooms.
