About this book


Janet Maybin investigates how 10-12 year-olds use talk and literacy to construct knowledge about their social worlds and themselves. She shows how children use collaborative verbal strategies, stories of personal experience and the reworked voices of others to investigate the moral order and forge their own identities.
