Social Contexts of Beginning Reading.
Griffin, Mary Lee
Language Arts, v78 n4 p371-78 Mar 2001
Examines social contexts of beginning readers through an exploration of three dimensions that have an impact upon beginning readers' reading events: peer relationships and their role in children's reading development, children's oral language and discourse, and constructivism and sociocultural perspectives on learning. Offers implications for teachers in the form of questions educators might ask themselves when developing literacy programs. (SG)
