Literacy Practices of Children and Their Mothers in a Specific Social and Cultural Context: Generating New Social Practices 89

Méndez J.M., Ph.D., applicant, Estado de San Luis Potosí, City of San Luis Potosi, Mexico, juanitamendezg@hotmail.com
Abstract
This qualitative research is focused on understanding the literacy practices of children and their mothers in a social and cultural context of the state of San Luis Potosí, central Mexico. I will address the results of field work analysis based on the historical cultural approach. I will show how a mother’s participation in literacy practices with a group of elementary school first graders detonated their process of empowerment and generated new social practices that arose from the actors in the educational community, through symmetrical relationships between children, mothers and teachers. The main results addressed are the acceptance of a mother’s participation in literacy practices in her context; intercultural relations identified in social practices through orality, reading, and writing, with reflection on the social and cultural context of their reality and with the performance of a play; and finally, the generation of new social practices in the classroom and in the context.

Keywords: interaction, cultural context, social practices, literacy practices

Column: Empirical Research

A Part of Article

I based the article on the field work results of qualitative research from an ethnographic perspective. The analysis presented is based on the cultural-historical theory, developed in a specific cultural and vulnerable context, located in the state of San Luis Potosí, Mexico, from September 2013 to January 2015, during the first eight months of which I worked as a teacher and researcher.
