McNemar, Britta S.
National Reading Conference Yearbook, v47 p274-84 1998
Presents a case study on the ways a low-income adolescent mother for whom English is a second language uses literacy at home, in school, and in the community. Traces her development in her interactions with her child, her transactions with texts that enabled her to fulfill responsibilities as a mother, and her use of multiple literacies to communicate with others.
