WA2 calls upon you to describe literacy practices as they function in the community you are researching . You are encouraged to use both images and text in the development of this argument. I will expect you to refer to articles and terms we have discussed in class (i.e. Barton and Hamilton) and to use them to explicate the preliminary research you have done in the field.
Questions to consider as you read: Does the paper focus on literacy in a particular community (i.e. their site)? Do they discuss artifacts and the literacy practices around them? Do they draw from observations and interviews? Do they use any scholarship (i.e. sources like Barton and Hamilton)? Do they use pictures? Should they use pictures?
Minimum Requirements Qualitative
Is the paper clear and concise? How well do they use Barton and Hamilton? Do they discuss artifacts and scholarship effectively? Do they use pictures effectively (i.e. do they relate to the text)? Are literacy practices in the community clearly identified and discussed? Do they relate those practices to the scholarship and artifacts? Are there any other concerns?
