Cox, Robyn
Language, Culture and Curriculum, v14 n3 p235-43 2001
Demonstrates how talking with children can provide an awareness of the "funds of knowledge" they bring to school. Examines the talk of a young girl from a culturally diverse background to gain insight into her cultural scientific knowledge; explores an adult's ability to collaborate with the student in pursuit of the topic; and offers suggestions for using these funds of knowledge in educational contexts.
