Abstract:

Contents: Introducing time -- Time, theory, and Javon -- time and change -- Students, reading, and books -- Teaching and time -- Parents' voices: memories and making sense -- Thinking about the future, drawing upon the past, and living in the present -- Time and literacy practices: becoming a reader over time -- Conclusion: reading time.; Summary: Catherine Compton-Lilly examines the literacy practices and school trajectories of eight middle school students and their families. Through a unique longitudinal lens--the author has studied these same students from first grade--we see how students from a low-income, inner-city community grow and develop academically, revealing critical insights for teachers about literacy development, identity construction, and school achievement. --from publisher description
