This book uses positioning theory as a guiding framework to examine teaching and learning in literacy-related contexts. These contexts include a range of literate practices, participants, and settings. Authors examine how teachers respond to multicultural texts, how adults guide children to appropriate academic discourse, how children engage in meaningful talk about texts-or avoid that talk, and how researchers write up and position themselves and their participants. Throughout the book, literacy practices, whether involving children or adults, are viewed as situated, social processes contingent upon cultural contexts and the meaning-making systems used within such contexts.
