SOCIAL, ECONOMIC & PROGRAM INFLUENCES: FAMILIES, SCHOOL and COMMUNITIES
Theme Leaders: Teena Willoughby,Brock University. Eileen Wood, Wilfrid Laurier University
Language and literacy occur in social and cultural contexts. Children live and learn
in the context of a family, school and community. As such, research and interventions
aimed at enhancing language and literacy skills must be sensitive to the needs and/or
abilities of the individual child and social context in which the child resides.
The goal of Theme V is to better understand the contexts in which language and
literacy occur and how to maximize the potential for children and their communities to
become fluent and literate.
