Transilliterate

Doug Johnson, May 31, 2013

This is an important question: Should transliteracy replace language arts? Is "language arts ... due for an update to encompass literacy in all the media that students must navigate in our mediacentric society?" I would say "yes", and this is a major part of the thinking behind my own work on the critical literacies - "the grammar, syntax, and vocabulary needed to create a professional looking video, podcast, graphic, or game [and] the analytic skills to deconstruct these media as I would a poem, novel, or essay."
