Re-Reading Families: The Literate Lives of Urban Children, Four Years Later (Practitioner Inquiry)

Re-Reading Families: The Literate Lives of Urban Children, Four Years Later (Practitioner Inquiry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Four years after publishing her provocative study, Reading Families: The Literate Lives of Urban Children, Compton-Lilly revisits the same group of urban students (then first graders, now fourth and fifth graders) and their families. Armed with rare longitudinal data from follow-up interviews and reading assessments, she once again upsets widespread misconceptions about reading and urban families. This eye-opening sequel uses case studies to explore important issues, such as students' feelings of connection to their school; gender and schooling; parents' experiences dealing with "the system"; high-stakes testing; and technology use at home.
