In Consideration to Literacy-based Curriculum

Djoko Sutopo


The approach of language teaching described in this paper is one focused on relationships – linguistic, cognitive, and social relationships between readers, writers, texts, and culture; relationships between form and meaning; relationships between reading and writing; relationships between spoken and written communication. The approach acknowledges the importance of textual analysis, but emphasizes the need to widen the scope of inquiry beyond the literary canon, to include a range of written and spoken texts that broadly represent the particular signifying practices of society.
