AREVALO, Joamsner Magdalena. Initial Literacy in Venezuela. From the New School to the Bolivarian Schools. Revista San Gregorio [online]. 2019, n.33, pp.88-101. ISSN 2528-7907.

Currently citizens are exposed to a large amount of information presented through various means. This torrent of information requires skills that are not only limited to the reproduction and decoding of signs and symbols but, individuals must be able to interpret and express themselves through different means and in more than one language. In this sense, the concepts related to literacy practices around the world have been transformed towards a more communicative approach in which the production and understanding of written discourse is appreciated as a tool for personal growth, including in this the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). With this in mind, a documentary research is exposed with the objective of describing a historical journey of the transformation of the concept of literacy in the Venezuelan Educational System (VES), beginning on 1936 with the new school until the current Bolivarian Educational System (BES). This will allow to appreciate that not only is there no consensus on the vision and methodology for literacy in Venezuela, but also a rethinking of the concept becomes necessary.

Palabras clave : Literacy; un-learning; critical rationalism; historical journey.
