The Children's Literature Hour: A Social-Constructivist Approach to Family Literacy.
Neuman, Susan B.; Celano, Donna; Fischer, Robyn
Journal of Literacy Research, v28 n4 p499-523 Dec 1996
Reports the results of a series of peer group discussions with adolescent mothers enrolled in a family literacy program. Finds that literacy was seen as important because it served as a tool to address economic and social concerns; and parents' goals for themselves focused on independence, being a role model to their children, and self-respect.
