Early Literacy Project- Explorations and Reflections, Part 1, Contemporary Education Dialogue, Vol 5.2, 2008

Recent literature in Early Literacy has highlighted a profound correlation between social background and literacy levels and the consequent implication of learners from some social contexts, in having greater difficulty in learning to read and write than others. Children are viewed as active participants in the process of learning. They learn social rules of meaning at home and then extend these social rules to the texts encountered in school.
