Alonzo Anderson and Bill Teale were developing what would become important and influential work on early literacy, documenting pre-schoolers “literacy events” in everyday family and community settings among low-income Mexican, Anglo, and Black families (Anderson, Teale & Estrada, 1980). In particular, they documented the life experiences and the variations that lead to the development of early literacy, and challenged the common assumption that the cultural factors of these low-income groups are deleterious to the development of literacy (Anderson & Stokes, 1984).
