Domains of Literacy:

For this journaling activity, have students split their worlds "into domains (i.e. places where literacy is carried out, for example, home, workplace, community, and so on). Within each domain, write a brief account of the literacy events you engage in. Note which are different and which are the same. Make a list of social practices that underpin the identified event" (Pahl & Rowsell, 2012, p. 9). This may be assigned as an in-class assignment or for take-home work. If done in class, it should take no longer than a single one-hour class period.
