Title: Literacy: Transcending the Printed Text
Author: Gaber, Alice
Description: In this literacy narrative, I try to define what "literacy" is based on my personal experiences with learning and constructing meaning in college. I conclude that literacy, or rather "literacies," are multiple and varied tools through which we communicate, transmit information, and learn about the world around us. In this narrative, I invite readers to join with me in a recollection of a class that I’ve taken as a college student, a class that incorporated various forms of literacies and that has consequentially stretched my capacity to learn creatively and independently, and to derive a greater sense of purpose and meaning from my studies.
