Performative

performative
PERFORMATIVE
  • the code as code – an important part of becoming literate
  • simply a matter of acquiring:
    • those skills that allow a written message to be decoded into speech in order to ascertain its meaning
    • those skills that allow a spoken message to be encoded in writing, according to the conventions of letter formation, spelling and punctuation.
  • ‘breaking the code’ of knowing the relationship between spoken and written symbols.
functional
FUNCTIONAL
  • emphasises the uses that are made of literacy in interpersonal communication
  • is able to as a member of that particular society to cope with the demands of everyday life that involve written language.
    • reading a popular newspaper,
    • writing a job application,
    • following procedural instructions
  • the dividing line between literacy and illiteracy
informational
INFORMATIONAL
  • focuses on the role that literacy plays in the communication of knowledge, particularly discipline-based knowledge
  • the curricular emphasis on reading and writing – but particularly reading
  • the student’s use for accessing the accumulated knowledge in order to construct a meaning which reciprocate the intention of the writer
  • ‘being a text participant’ (able to ‘comprehend’ the text)
epistemic
EPISTEMIC
  • to have available ways of acting upon and transforming knowledge and experience that are in general unavailable to those who have never learned to read and write
  • the aesthetic aspect of language as art (literature, poetry)

spoken and written language
Spoken and Written Language

Spoken and Written Continuum

Most spoken

Most written

Language accompanying action

Language as reflection

Spoken language

Written language

most spoken
Most Spoken
  • The term ‘most spoken’ refers to language interactions where language most closely accompanies action, and where there is the least physical distance between participants.
  • Examples of ‘most spoken’ texts include the language that accompanies tennis matches, basketball games, shared games, construction of buildings, etc.
most written
Most Written
  • The term ‘most written’ refers to language texts where distance from action is greatest and where distance between participants is maximal.
  • Examples of ‘most written’ texts include abstract reflections on causes and effects of distant events, such as history or economics, theoretical arguments and where an author writes for an unknown future audience.
