Gender and Cultural Differences: A Sociocognitive Perspective on Parent Involvement in Students' Autobiographies.
Kaste, Janine A.
Reading Horizons, v39 n4 p295-312 1999
Examines the types of literacy support parents gave their children at home with 15 students from a diverse class of 23 third graders during an eight-week integrated unit on writing autobiographies. Finds pattern differences between genders with respect to the nature of support given at home. Suggests that particularly African-American males received more explicit guidance than did girls. (SC)
