Many Families, Many Literacies: An International Declaration of Principles by Taylor, Denny

[This book] counters narrow definitions of family literacy by presenting an alternative paradigm, a different version of the reality of families literate lives. Instead of offering to help families with their literacy, Taylors text shows her readers how families can gain the power they need to change the world in ways that are most significant and meaningful to them. - Composition Chronicle At a time when family literacy policies and practices are confusingly fragmented and often deficit driven, Many Families, Many Literacies provides much-needed guidance on developing policies and practices that build on the strengths that families bring to any learning situation: their diverse languages, literacies, and complex problem-solving capabilities. Many Families, Many Literacies reclaims family literacy from the family literacy movement and asserts that society constructs the conditions of poverty in which many minority families are forced to live. It represents the opinions of forty-nine leading education experts and family literacy practitioners, including Lucille Fandel, Ken Goodman, Yetta Goodman, David Barton, Audrey N. Grant, Klaudia Rivera, Judith Kalman, Letta Matsiepe Mashishi, and many others. This edited collection is essential reading for any educator, researcher, or community-based practitioner concerned about the political implications of the family literacy movement.
