Abstract:

The Meaning Makers is about children's language and literacy development at
home and at school. Based on the Bristol Study, "Language at Home and at
School," which the author directed, it follows the development of a
representative sample of children from their first words to the end of
their primary schooling. It contains many examples of their experience of
language in use, both spoken and written, recorded in naturally occurring
settings in their homes and classrooms, and shows the active role that
children play in their own development as they both make sense of the world
around them and master the linguistic means for communicating about it.

Additionally, this second edition sets the findings of the original study
in the context of recent research in the sociocultural tradition inspired
by Vygotsky's work and includes examples of effective teaching drawn from
the author's recent collaborative research with teachers.
