MULTIPLE LITERACIES

It’s Not Just the 3 R’s Any More!

There are multiple literacies required for success in the 21st century.  At one time “literacy” was considered to be the ability to read and write, and perhaps do math. 

According to Douglas Kellner, Ph.D. at UCLA “literacy involves gaining the skills and knowledge to read and interpret the text of the world and to successfully navigate its challenges, conflicts and crises.  Literacy is a necessary condition to equip people to participate in the local, national and global economy, culture and polity.”

This is a list of important literacies which should be developed through 21st century curriculum.

  • Ecoliteracy

  • Financial Literacy

  • Media Literacy

  • Emotional Literacy

  • Information Literacy

  • Aural Literacy

  • Visual Literacy

  • Multicultural Literacy

  • Physical Fitness and Nutrition

  • Cyberliteracy

  • Global Competencies

To learn more about these literacies and how to help students develop them please attend our workshop, Designing the 21st Century Classroom - a curriculum design workshop, or for a more in-depth experience register for the workshop Multiple Literacies.
