"...represents an elegant weaving of ethnographic fieldwork with standard psychometric techniques of cross-cultural methodology within an analysis of traditional and emerging contexts of literal practice in Moroccan society. Interesting historical descriptions, detailed research procedures and well supported conclusions make this work well worth reading...a good cookbook with many recipes from which we can benefit as we work toward a global understanding of literacy development." Richard Ricard, Mind, Culture, and Activity
Focusing on Moroccan children whose parents are unschooled, and whose language differs from that used in the classroom, this text addresses the importance of "mother-tongue" literacy programs, the notion of literacy "relapse," and the concept of educational poverty.
