Description

In this book, Anne Haas Dyson aims to provide elementary and early childhood professionals with “a better understanding of the social work of childhood, the ways that social work shapes both oral and written composing, and ways of creating classroom crossroads where worlds can come together and open up to new places.” Her two-year ethnographic study, focusing on K–3 children who would normally be deemed “at-risk,” explores how six students use varied kinds of language art forms and traditions—oral and written—as they construct and participate in the complicated worlds of school.
