Sample text

Throughout, I build an argument for an analysis of family literacy practices to be viewed as an apprenticeship. That is, as Vicky learned literacy she also learned social roles through observation, participation, and transformation to practice (Rogoff, 1995). However, consistent with the commitment to relations of power in discourse, as presented to this point, I argue that individuals do not just learn literacy skills in this process; they learn complex and contradictory ways of being in the world (Gee, 1996; Johnston, 1999).

Thus, the third interpretive move involved the use of CDA as an analytic strategy. CDA helped to illuminate how people make sense of their reality and understand their social positions. To these ends, Norman Fairclough (1989, 1992, 1995) presented three, intersecting domains that represent the conceptual spaces in which language functions as social practice. These domains are the genre (ways of interacting), discourse (ways of representing), and style (ways of being). Each order of discourse can be analyzed at the local, the institutional, and the societal orders of discourse (see Appendix E for the definitions and codes of CDA used in this study).

Though I began the research with a set of theoretical frameworks as described in chapter 1 and 36 CHAPTER 2 in the earlier discussion in this chapter, I was conscious of the need for the data (and myself) to be open to counterinterpretations. Therefore, in analyzing the nature of literacy and social relations, especially as they relate to issues of power, I need to illuminate my own role in the process. The writing of this research reveals as much about my own position within institutional systems, especially that of schools, as it does about the Treaders.
