Book Information


Title: Local Literacies
Written By: David Barton
Mary Hamilton

Local Literacies is a unique study of everyday reading and writing. By concentrating on a selection of people in a particular community in Britain, the authors analyze how they use literacy in their day to day lives. This exploration provides a description of literacy at one point in time, and also reveals the nature and significance of communication to people, households and communities.
