Abstract

Without question, literacy is a vital foundation for educational success. However, the term literacy refers, quite narrowly, to linguistic literacy; the process of meaning-making derived from written or oral human language. When non-literary forms of communication and expression are discussed academically and critically, it is often through the lens of a cultural studies analysis that focuses on narrative and ideology (Bender, 2012). Within cinema, this amounts to a study of the content in the screenplay, an approach which often disregards the form of the filmmaking; for example, mise-en-scène, editing, and sound design. Most educators would agree that literacy in the 21st Century has a wider scope. Some have suggested the extension of literacy to include a study of visual literacy, while others argue visual literacy and linguistic literacy should both be understood as elements of a whole literacy. This article investigates the differences and commonalities between visual and linguistic literacy claiming that the term literacy encompasses the reading of all forms of communication regardless of modality.
