Sample text

Two main subsets of vocal sound are oral language or speech and vocal music or singing. These two subsets are often treated as separate and yet they overlap in important ways and are formed and shaped by cultural experiences. Both speech and singing have a common ontogeny and develop “from the same anatomical and physiological structures” (Welch, 2005, p. 239). Since babies have a tendency to explore and imitate vocally, their vocal sounds might be interpreted as musical (glissandi, melodic) or as precursors of prosody in speech.

These interconnections are, as signaled in chapter one and reinforced by Finnegan (2002), sensory-based and tied to the material; and they allow communication across generations as well as “space and time” (p. xv). Making visible these funds of knowledge so that they can be valued and built upon, we would argue, is a necessary enterprise in contemporary curriculum work. A seldom heard message concerning funds of knowledge, but a vital one, especially for curriculum designers, is the need for criticality when working with the concept (Oughton, 2009).

The notion of literacies as social practices can keep us awake to this potential reduction. A social practices stance to literacies allows for an understanding of communication practices to be conceptualized and perceived as (at least) dynamic, embodied, and socio-historically-culturally and materially situated. We take Barton’s (2005) following discussion of written language as a social practice to crystalize this approach to epistemology and its semiotic instantiation. He said, in the simplest sense literacy practices are what people do with literacy.
