Hruby, George G.
Reading Research Quarterly, v36 n1 p48-62 Jan-Mar 2001
Offers an historical definition of social constructionism, a review of its conceptual bases, and an exploration of its epistemological implications. Describes a history comprised of three paradigmatically distinct waves: a sociological, a postmodern, and an emerging third wave grounded in new realism or neonaturalism. Suggests potential uses of each for literacy education scholars. (SR)
