We tend to think of literacy as reading and writing, but in current scholarship, the definition of literacy has been expanded to incorporate the learning of basically anything, from another language to learning how to use a computer.
A good working definition of literacy might look like this: “Literacy is a process situated in sociocultural contexts defined by members of a group through their actions with, through and about language” (Cairney 8).
 

  1. For this project I would like you to investigate a literacy practice unique to a community (How developers/coders talk and communicate and how the coders community evolved). Your task for this project will be to first identify the literacy practice in the community (Using coding strings as a means to hint at something in real life)
  2. Then you will compose a 1000-word essay that documents this community and their literacy practice. You will then compare your experience of literacy practices with what is known about it.  At the end of your paper, you will offer a short argument, supported with a couple of secondary sources about why these literacy practices have evolved within the community. Your essay should include a clear introduction to the topic, a thesis statement that guides the body of the paper, a body that contains the data you collected and your evaluation of it, and a conclusion.

 
Things to talk about:

  • How the coders community has evolved from to a small community that founded a range of technologies to a community that is growing exponentially and perhaps highly regarded.
  • How coders communicate with each other using coding string with a relatable meaning to joke around (In real life) or communicate something (also in real life).
  • Research some of how this is done (examples of using code to indicate things in real life).
  • What makes the community the way it is or what makes it special?
  • How society perceives this community and the way it is viewed (Perhaps stereotyped?)
  • How average people think that coding is something really hard or it’s just for nerds.
  • Talk about how this community is a hybrid of other communities (like mathematicians since math is very connected to coding)
  • How things like Semicolons, Parentheses, and Brackets can trigger coders because they are easily confused while coding which causes the code to fail or bug out)
  • How coding strengthens other skills valuable skills like attention to detail and troubleshooting)

 
P.S: Feel free to add more points that you are more comfortable writing about and/or exclude some of the points mentioned above. (Do whatever you have to do to produce an articulate essay)
