The Road to Participation: The Construction of a Literacy Practice in a Learning Community of Linguistically Diverse Learners.
Kong, Ailing; Pearson, P. David
Research in the Teaching of English, v38 n1 p85-124 Aug 2003
Describes a year-long process in which a group of fourth- and fifth-grade students with diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds learned to participate in reading, writing, and talking about books in a literature-based instructional program. Reveals a gradual release of responsibility from the teacher to students as they developed the knowledge and skills needed to respond to books and explore personal meanings collaboratively through guided participation.
