Towards a Conceptual Framework for Early Literacy- A Balanced and Socially Sensitive Approach Language and Language teaching -Vol 1(1) January 2012-2

Sixty odd years after attaining independence, we still find large numbers of school going children in India who rote learn their way through school, and for all practical purposes cannot be said to be independent readers and writers. This paper focuses on the special needs of children who do not have support for
reading and writing at home, and who require support for enabling a smooth and meaningful transition from the oral cultures in their homes and social worlds to the print based cultures of school.
