by Amanda Claudia Wager and Lane W. Clarke and Grace Enriquez


Overview -

  • Emphasizes student-centered practices that are rooted in a child's identity as a reader and language learner.
  • Based on Freebody and Luke's Four Resources Model (1990, 1999) but also includes a "fifth" dimension that foregrounds issues of identity.
