Protean Literacy : Extending the Discourse on Empowerment, Hardback Book

Protean Literacy : Extending the Discourse on Empowerment Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Literacy series

Description

Originally published in 1996. During the author's decade of critical ethnography in Carpinteria, California, she has illuminated the intricate relationships between Latino families as together they build a sociopolitical community to bridge family and school alliances.

How they extend their learning from the social networks to the family arena and to the personal, and in reverse, represents their protean responses to the diversity and adversity in their lives.

This life-story captures the collective and individual texts of the Latino children, their parents and educators used to empower themselves to transform discontinuity in an age where continuity is increasingly foreign.
