As teachers and librarians know, literacy is a lot more than reading: it's a whole suite of skills that allow the literate person to reach beyond what they know from personal experience, to discover information and ideas, and to use these to understand more and better about the world and themselves. Whether the literacy skills involve visual reading, listening reading, video observation, or critical evaluation of directions, being literate provides teens and adults with the ability to make social changes through civic engagement.
