Critical Literacy Finds a "Place": Writing and Social Action in a Low-Income Australian Grade 2/3 Classroom.
Comber, Barbara; Thomson, Pat; Wells, Marg
Elementary School Journal, v101 n4 p451-64 Mar 2001
Draws on a study of socioeconomically disadvantaged children's acquisition of school literacies to investigate how children's writing and drawing might be key elements in developing critical literacies in elementary school settings. Focuses on how such classroom writing can be a mediator of emotions, intellectual and academic learning, social practice, and political activism. (Author/SD)
