Excerpting from a press release that just came across the LINGUIST list:

David Barton and Mary Hamilton, LOCAL LITERACIES
Reading and Writing in One Community
Local Literacies is a unique study of everyday reading and writing.
concentrating on a selection of people in a particular community in
Britain, the authors analyze how they use literacy in their day to
lives. This exploration provides a description of literacy at one
point in time, and also reveals the nature and significance of
communication to people, households and communities.

Thought the topic may be of interest to folks here. Just curious, as I
am starting to make presentations at various conferences, trainings etc
I notice that when I talk about documenting client use of language I
always end up suggesting videotape or SW.

Are others making presentations that end up advocating SW use?
