Creating New Conversations about Literacy: Working with Special Needs Students in a Middle-School Classroom.
Cousin, Patricia Tefft; And Others
Learning Disability Quarterly, v16 n4 p282-98 Fall 1993
This case study of the literacy strategies used by a young adolescent male with learning disability revealed that the student produced unsophisticated literacy behaviors in traditional academic contexts, whereas more sophisticated uses were exhibited in contexts that bridged the student's personal and cultural knowledge to literacy use in the classroom.
