Membaca Kata, Membaca Dunia

Salam literasi,

Momentum Hari Buku Sedunia yang diperingati hari ini 23 April 2013 membuat saya teringat salah satu buku karya Paulo Freire berjudul Literacy: Reading The Word and The World. Di dalam buku ini Freire menyatakan bahwa literasi bukan hanya persoalan mengenai membaca dalam arti keterampilan membaca namun literasi adalah mengenai bagaimana seseorang membaca dunia di mana ia tinggal. Mengenai hal ini Freire dengan gamblang menulis:

“The act of learning to read and write has to start from a very comprehensive understanding of the act of reading the world, something which human beings do before reading the words. Even historically, human beings first changed the world, secondly proclaimed the world and then wrote the words. These are moments of history. Human beings did not start naming A! F! N! They started by freeing the hand, grasping the world.”

Ah, sudah lama saya ingin menuliskan review dan refleksi saya atas buku Paulo Freire berjudul Literacy: Reading The Word and The World ini. Semoga saja dapat saya tulis segera. Happy World Book Day!
