Using Social Proclivity To Enhance Literacy Learning for Young Adolescents.
Irvin, Judith L.
Childhood Education, v73 n5 p290-91 1997
Examines social aspects of literacy learning; presents some thoughts on reading development and literacy instruction. Suggests that teachers should promote literacy by incorporating students' interests in their activities. Developing chat rooms, posting messages on the Internet, and making a radio play for younger students all provide meaningful literacy tasks, offer authentic audiences, and provide natural contexts for social interaction.
