Abstract:

The concept of "funds of knowledge" is based on a simple premise: people
are competent and have knowledge, and their life experiences have given
them that knowledge. The claim in this book is that first-hand research
experiences with families allow one to document this competence and
knowledge, and that such engagement provides many possibilities for
positive pedagogical actions.

Drawing from both Vygotskian and neo-sociocultural perspectives in
designing a methodology that views the everyday practices of language and
action as constructing knowledge, the funds of knowledge approach
facilitates a systematic and powerful way to represent communities in
terms of the resources they possess and how to harness them for classroom
teaching.

This book accomplishes three objectives: It gives reader the basic
methodology and techniques followed in the contributors' funds of knowledge
research; it extends the boundaries of what these researchers have done;
and it explores the applications to classroom practice that can result from
teachers knowing the communities in which they work.
