Abstract:

Why are girls outperforming boys in literacy skills in the Western
education system today? To date, there have been few attempts to answer
this question. Literacy and Gender sets out to redress this state of
affairs by re-examining the social organization of literacy in primary
schools.

In studying schooling as a social process, this book focuses on the links
between literacy, gender and attainment, the role school plays in producing
social difference and the changing pattern of interest in this topic both
within the feminist community and beyond. Gemma Moss argues that the reason
for girls' relative success in literacy lies in the structure of schooling
and in particular the role the reading curriculum plays in constructing a
hierarchy of learners in class. Using fine-grained ethnographic analysis of
reading in context, this book outlines methods for researching literacy as
a social practice and understanding how different versions of what counts
as literacy can be created in the same site.
