Children of promise : literate activity in linguistically and culturally diverse classrooms by Shirley Brice Heath( Book )

4 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph addresses the challenge of improving literacy learning for all children, especially those in language-minority classrooms. The monograph introduces some of these classrooms in detail, examining and describing their literacy practices and setting forth some of the principles of learning and language that underlie them. It is the result of long-term collaboration between a classroom teacher and a university researcher, and provides a model for university-school collaboration. The monograph sets the stage for future collaborations between practitioners and researchers that can suggest new and creative ways to improve school-based literacy learning. Special attention is focused on the following: cultural and linguistic differences; inside the classroom; writing, learning, and the teacher's role; literate behavior and literacy skills; and building theory and practice together. Suggestions for implementing cross-grade tutoring projects and references and a reading list are appended. (Jl)
