ABSTRACT
Research indicates that there are a growing number of socio-economically-disadvantaged students who are caught in a pattern of changing schools frequently in North America. These mobile or transient students often struggle in school. This paper describes a study whose purpose was to support the literacy growth and development of mobile students in an urban community school in Canada. The study sought to build excitement for and engagement with school literacy through collaboration among a researcher, classroom teacher and a teacher-librarian.
