Literacy acquisition and literacy development are interesting and necessary topics for research,
reflection and pedagogical action for educators at all educational levels. Ferreiro’s speech at the
26th quadrennial congress of the International Publishers Union in the year 2000 addressed literacy
acquisition as a right of all citizens in a democracy, and as a multidisciplinary field studied by a
plethora of scholars from disciplines like history, anthropology, psycho-linguistics, and linguistics.
Her discussion, framed within a sociocultural context for literacy, views diversity from different facets:
“diversity of systems of writing invented by humanity; diversity of purposes and social uses; diversity
of languages in contact; diversity regarding texts” (Ferreiro, 2001, p. 58).
