Toward a Social-Contextual Approach to Family Literacy.
Auerbach, Elsa Roberts
Harvard Educational Review, v59 n2 p165-81 May 1989
Argues that programs teaching parents to assist children with homework practice the "deficit hypothesis" and are not based on sound research. Proposes a broader definition of family literacy that acknowledges the family's social situation, focuses on the family's strengths, and uses a social-contextual approach to curriculum development.
