This unique and timely book follows the experiences of four Arabic
teenagers, their families and their community, focusing on the role
of literacy in their daily lives and the differences between home
and school. The author looks at the conflict between expectations
and practices at school and in the home, arguing that problems are
inevitable where class and cultural differences exist. Emerging
themes include: how literacy practices in the community are
undergoing rapid change due to global developments in technology
how the patterns of written and spoken language in English and
Arabic in the home are linked with social practices in logical and
coherent ways how many of the family practices that differ from
school culture and language become marginalised. Built around these
insightful case studies yet grounded in theory, this book is of
immediate relevance to teachers working in multicultural contexts
and students and lecturers in language/literacy or on TESOL
