Rights, Mollie
This paper reviews 5 articles published in 1995 on family literacy research. The articles reviewed are: (1) a study on literacy in Iceland by Ronald Taylor which examined how Icelandic families share language and reading related activities; (2) an article by Barbara Moss and Gay Fawcett which describes and comments on different home literacy environments that influence highly literate adults in the United States; (3) an article by Trevor Cairney and Lynne Munsie which describes the goals of the "Talk to a Literacy Learner (TTALL)" program in Australia to increase parental participation in the literacy of their children and to train community resource people to help with community literacy activities; (4) a report by Barbara Come and Anthony Fredericks on the "Families That Read, Succeed" program in Savannah, Georgia which describes planning strategies, school-university collaboration, in-school literacy activities, and offers ideas for home-school connections for at-risk children and their parents; and (5) an article about the "FLAME" program developed by Timothy Shanahan, Margaret Mulhern, and Flora Rodriguez-Brown to provide literacy training to parents in linguistic minority families (in this case, Latino families) to support their children's school learning.
