We asked, you answered!
This past summer we asked teachers and educators what literacy means to them, and here are some of their answers:
“Literacy opens doors – It allows us to express our thoughts and to make sense of the world around us. Teaching children to be literate gives them a gift they’ll have for the rest of their lives!”-Amy MacRae
“Literacy is an essential aspect of our everyday lives that is embedded in our activities, social interactions & relationships. It is not only the ability to read & write, but to comprehend.”- Jeff Magee
“Literacy, to me, means that students have the opportunity to explore, learn and think critically about what they read, see and hear. They can share and express their understandings.”- Charmaine Wilkie
“Literacy is FREEDOM! The freedom to go where you want in the world in books, experience what you want in stories, & the freedom to share your wisdom with others through the power of your words.”- Carrie Froman
“Literacy goes beyond the meaning of the ability to read and write. It opens the doors to many opportunities and empowers us with knowledge. Literacy is never taken for granted.”- Jean Mark
So tell us, what does literacy mean to you?
