What is literacy and WHY is it important?

 

Literacy is critical in helping us make sense of our world. From the time we wake up to the time we go to sleep, we are constantly making meaning of the world around us.

 Literacy has traditionally been thought of as reading and writing. Although these are essential components of literacy, today our understanding of literacy encompasses much more.

Literacy is  the ability, confidence and willingness to engage with language to acquire, construct and communicate meaning in all aspects of daily living. Language is explained as a socially and culturally constructed system of communication.

Literacy  is a fundamental human right and the basis for any individual's ability to learn. It is essential for social and human development and provides individuals the skills and empowers them to transform their lives, in turn, an improved standard of health and ability to earn a higher income !!!!!!
