Abstract

STELLA, Paulo Rogério  and  TAVARES, Roseanne Rocha. Pedagogical Project of the Licentiate course in English at UFAL: literacies in question. Rev. bras. linguist. apl. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.4, pp. 955-970.  Epub Nov 06, 2012. ISSN 1984-6398.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1984-63982012005000013.

This article aims at analyzing and discussing the Pedagogical Project of the Licentiate Course in English at the Federal University of Alagoas - Maceió in relation to the meanings of literacies. Considering that a written document reflects a socio-ideological position (CHARTIER, 1999); that a project should not only function pedagogically, but also politically in the sense that it should provoke a change in the reality (FREIRE, 2001); and that the evolution of such a document depends on critical revisions (PENNYCOOK, 2001), we observed that this project, published in 2007, reveals a considerably restricted position in relation to the concurrent modalities and in relation to the modalities concurrent in the process of meaning-making (MONTE-MÓR, 2001) of these texts. The concept of literacy (in the singular) is restricted only to reading and writing and is apparently dissociated from the use of technologies.

Keywords : pedagogical project; letters; literacies; technologies; meaningmaking.
