Literacy Jokes Update – Another Lightbulb Joke…


How many literacy specialists does it take to change a lightbulb?

Answer: None. Literacy specialists don’t change lightbulbs per se, but you need about a 6 to make it happen… One to analyse the literacy demands of the task, another to conduct a diagnostic assessment of students potentially capable of changing lightbulbs to find out what they already know, a third to recruit some students into actually changing the lightbulb, another to pre-teach words like “lightbulb” and “ladder” and to deliver any training around how to understand the instructions, a fifth to measure the success of the students in both changing the lightbulb and comprehending key technical vocabulary, and a sixth to conduct an evaluation on whether the entire operation was effective or not and present the results to management.
