Literacy @ D.S.S.


Read a book, read a magazine, read a newspaper: these are the kinds of reading we expect, but there are many other kinds of reading: reading a movie, reading a website, reading a room, reading a website, reading a face, reading a gesture.

Here is the truth: we read the world. When we read, we are actively engaged in creating meaning in the world.

Read! You are doing it right now whether you know it or not.
