Summary

Reconceptualizing Curriculum, Literacy, and Learning for School-Age Mothers offers a portrait of classroom literacy practices and learning opportunities that are provided for school-age mothers in two different schools. Through a series of case studies of school sites, teachers, and students, this book presents evidence of how these at-risk students use literacy in complex ways in the classroom and in their everyday lives. Attuned to the struggle for school-age mothers’ access to meaningful and challenging curriculum in public schools, as well as to the relative dearth of scholarly research on the topic, this volume demonstrates how educators can rethink the issue of schooling for this population of students.
