Literacy, languages, social media post
You have learned about literacy sponsorship, multiple literacies, and the relationship between
literacy and power. In this assignment, you will study the world you participate in and analyze its
literacies through the critical lenses you have developed in Unit 2. This will ultimately yield an essay
of 1500 words minimum.
What is “the language” in your world? What are “the languages”? You will study written
communication to explain the dominant literacy/literacies in your discourse communities. I share
my google docs with you from my fields notes for you to use my social media post as examples in
the paper and It MUST be in text citations and end text citations from the social media post and
from the book.
