Notes from the Underground: Unofficial Literacy in One Sixth Grade.
Hubbard, Ruth
Anthropology and Education Quarterly, v20 n4 p291-307 Dec 1989
Explores note writing and other "literacy events" in one sixth-grade classroom. Focuses on the "unofficial" use of literacy used to communicate within the students' underground classroom culture. Learning that exceeds adult expectations is evident in students' nonacademic writing which they use to present themselves, to share, and to order. (JS)
