National Center for the Study of Writing and Literacy Occasional Paper    

OP 08. Writing and Reading in the Community

By Jenny Cook-Gumperz, Marcia Farr, Robert Gundlach

Summary: This paper reviews recent scholarship on writing and reading outside of school--that is, in the community, both at home and in the workplace. Gundlach, Farr, and Cook- Gumperz explore writing and reading as social practices and consider the implications of this social view of literacy outside of school for writing and reading instruction in school. March, 1989; 41 pages.
