Linking Home, School and Community Literacy Events
AbstractThis article examines the social and cultural value of literacy within home communities. It then considers ways of linking classroom instruction to ways of "doing literacy" in the home/community first by viewing the classroom and school as communities and second by designing classroom instructional practices that reach out to the broader community. Such practices can not only provide a way to link the organization of instruction to the social world of the child but a way to promote respect among children, and between home and school community members.
