Literacy Case Study

Introduction

Literature serves as a repository of human experience . The possibility of such is evident in the personal and political character evident in the creation of a literary work . Such a character is present in the process of creating a literary work . The literary work may be depicted as an artist 's compilation of thoughts

and ideas formulated into a coherent whole . The process of formulating such is spearheaded by the artist 's acquisition of language through the socialization process Socialization occurs at the formal and informal level . The formal level is generally characterized by the acquisition of the syntactical and semantical rules of a language . Such a process occurs during a child 's education .

The study shows that an individual 's literacy level increasingly develops throughout the life span because of the continuous stimulation of various stimuli that necessitates the individual 's continuous use of his reading and writing skills . In Ali 's case , this is evident , as he perceives literature as the focal point which enabled him to develop an interest for the other subjects during his junior year . In relation to this , his later years of development [specifically that which is situated within the University] mirrors his literacy development . Ali 's development has shifted towards...
