Hicks, Deborah
Language Arts, v78 n3 p217-26 Jan 2001
Offers a narrative history of the life of one young reader, observing him at school and at home in grades K-2. Notes how the social practices and relationships he experienced at his blue-collar home bore upon the task of becoming a reader in school. Discusses increasing difficulties of negotiating between these two different cultural settings and his increasing resistance to school. (SR)
