Compton-Lilly C. Reading time : the literate lives of urban secondary students and their families. New York ; London: Teachers College Press, Teachers College, Columbia University; 2012. Abstract
Compton-Lilly C. Breaking the silence : recognizing the social and cultural resources students bring to the classroom. Newark, DE: International Reading Association; 2009.

"The standards-based initiatives that dominate educational policy and practice today typically focus only on the surface skills of reading, isolating teaching and learning from the social and cultural contexts that are a part of every classroom. Fortunately, in this excellent volume edited by Catherine Compton-Lilly, you will enter classrooms in which literacy is treated as more than just as set of skills, and discover solutions and possibilities for providing culturally responsive teaching."
