To conclude, Dyson had clearly developed the research themes based on what she observed from the children’s literacy learning experiences to show how their worldviews were developed through their meaning-making negotiations and constructions with people around them. She was very deliberate and detailed in explaining the literacy world of children. She had done a very good job in associating children’s literate behaviors with Bakhtin’s concept of language as social dialogues Geertz’s concept of “imaginative universe”.
