Why Does Joshua "Hate" School...but Love Sunday School?
McMillon, Gwendolyn Thompson; Edwards, Patricia A.
Language Arts, v78 n2 p111-20 Nov 2000
Examines the learning experiences of a five-year-old African American preschooler who was considered exceptionally literate in Sunday School, but socially illiterate in preschool. Explores ways in which these two settings enabled or disabled Joshua's attempt to become a reader. Discusses his parent's role in facilitating the process by explicitly teaching him to negotiate the cultural boundaries of his two learning environments. (SR)
