Turning to the World: Bilingual Schooling, Literacy, and the Cultural Mediation of Thinking.
Moll, Luis C.
National Reading Conference Yearbook, v47 p59-75 1998
Discusses the cultural mediation of thinking and the idea of schools as special cultural settings that are never neutral. Describes an approach that mediates the school's contradiction between access to and control of literacy through a pedagogy that transcends the classroom and challenges the reductionist tendencies that characterize working-class schooling.
