Family Lives and Family Literacy Traditions

By Carole Jackson


This paper explores literacy traditions within the lives of three families. The\ud narrative accounts of family members from three generations provided a\ud retrospective view. I drew on my experiences as a teacher working with young\ud children and their parents. The narratives of grandparents, parents and of three\ud children form the core of the study. The role of family literacy is described; it\ud is positioned in sharp relief alongside schooled literacy
