|Title:||Cultural Literacy: Crassness or Canon?||Contributor(s):||Buckland, CA (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/934||Abstract:||In the world of multiliteracies, cultural literacy is something of a poor relation. The best known advocate of cultural literacy, E.D. Hirsch, argues that successful reading requires a knowledge of "taken-for-granted information that is not set down on the page." One aspect of this assumed information that is increasingly devalued is knowledge of 'high culture'. The higher one's level of cultural literacy, the more one can aesthetically and critically participate in reading and viewing. Cultural literacy should be taught to all students at all levels of education as it is a powerful instrument of social good.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Multiliteracies & English Teaching K-12 In the Age of Information & Communication Technologies 2004, University of New England, Armidale, 24-27 November, 2004||Conference Details:||Multiliteracies & English Teaching K-12 In the Age of Information & Communication Technologies 2004, University of New England, Armidale, 24-27 November, 2004||Source of Publication:||Multiliteracies & English Teaching K-12 in the Age of Information & Communication Technologies 2004 - Conference Proceedings, p. 1-10||Publisher:||ALEA: Australian Literacy Educators Association & UNE: University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||130106 Secondary Education||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://alea.edu.au/html/conferences/26/conferences||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 118
