What Really Counts in Early Literacy Lessons.
Comber, Barbara
Language Arts, v78 n1 p39-49 Sep 2000
Examines three children's early experiences of school literacy lessons to consider what makes a difference in their relative success and failure during the first months of school. Argues that how, whether, and to what extent children take up what teachers make available to them is inextricably connected with the repertoires of practices and knowledges the children already possess.
