What type of family context promotes success in literacy? Is there a connection between different societal environments and success in literacy? These issues are addressed in this article from the perspective of social reproduction and cultural capital. In other words, instead of looking at group relations between Francophones in minority communities and the Anglo-dominant group, we focus on group relations within Francophone minority communities. The Anglo-dominant environment has an undeniable influence on the Francophone minority. This being said, many students in Francophone minority communities succeed in developing strong literacy skills. Viewing the principles of teaching in a minority setting through social reproduction theory, it is possible to explain, at least in part, how for some children the development of literacy skills also requires them to learn a social environment, beginning in early childhood.
