Intergenerational Literacy Model Project Handbook.
Quintero, Elizabeth, Comp.
This handbook describes a model project that provided literacy instruction for parents of preschool and primary school children and suggests on-going activities for parents to do with children at home. It also provides suggestions for implementing a similar program in other locales. The section on recruitment offers suggestions and sample materials. The section on implementation contains a list of references, describes teaching strategies, and discusses the five-step curriculum--initial inquiry, learning activity, language experience approach, storybook demonstration, and home activity choices. A typical class session is provided. The next section specifically addresses instruction in literacy from a pragmatic standpoint for limited English speakers. The final section describes what happened in the project, including the positive and negative effects of social context on literacy learning, adult achievement during learning activities intended for the children, and the importance of oral language on adult learning. Appendixes include a literature review; a core curriculum that includes each of the five steps and lists needed materials; an evaluation narrative; sample graphic information of evaluation observations; sample evaluation forms; and teaching tips.
