Overview

Designed to draw attention to the ideological nature of literacy education in different contexts, this collection crosses traditional boundaries between the studies of family, community and school literacies. The contributors provide portraits of literacy developments, the relationships among different instructional systems and the ways literacy skills are put into practice. The papers address such subjects as siblings as literacy teachers in multilingual communities; taking account of violence; and literacy across the life span.
