Families at a Disadvantage: Class, Culture, and Literacies.
Tett, Lyn; Crowther, Jim
British Educational Research Journal, v24 n4 p449-60 Sep 1998
Addresses the issue of diverse literacies and the problems of privileging a dominant form of literacy at the expense of those from non-mainstream cultures. Illustrates how the literacy practices of working-class families and communities can be incorporated into learning programs. Stresses the need to legitimate the vernacular literacies of the home and community. (CMK)
