SILVA, Elizabeth Maria da  and  ARAUJO, Denise Lino de. Literacy: a plural phenomenon. Rev. bras. linguist. apl. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.4, pp.681-698.  Epub Sep 18, 2012. ISSN 1984-6398.

This article has the main objective of discussing three literacy approaches: critical (BARTON; HAMILTON, 2000, GEE, 2000), socio-pragmatic (MEY, 2001) and socio-rhetoric (BAZERMAN, 2007). Based on this discussion, it is possible to observe that the defenders of these approaches share the same principle, although they use different names and stress different aspects - both the social and individual factors seem to interfere in the format of the literacy practices demonstrated by the subjects.

Keywords : Literacy Approaches; Literacy Practices; Communicative Situation; Literacy History.
