Hello again List Members:

This reply and suggested resource also comes from Tom Sticht.

Andrea has brought up the idea of the distinction between literacy 
and reading. In a paper entitled Teaching Reading With Adults
fulltext/sticht/jan02/cover.htm) I discuss the merging of alphabetics
graphics technology to create graphic displays for reading of the
(graphic) language as a second signaling system for the spoken language.

The use of the three primary properties of graphic displays, ie., their
of light, their ability to be arrayed in space, and their relative 
permancence, when combined with the unique properties of language make 
possible the many types of literacy tasks assessed in the
ALL and forthcoming NAAL. Tom Sticht
