Frontiers in Family Learning. A Showcase of Exemplary Family Literacy Programs.
National Center for Family Literacy, Louisville, KY.
This report showcases four programs nationally recognized as leaders in family literacy--each of these programs has participated in a validation process sponsored by the National Diffusion Network (NDN), an agency of the United States Department of Education that disseminates information and training about exemplary educational programs and practices. All four of the programs receive federal Even Start funding; the recognized programs are: Literacy Volunteers of America--Chippewa Valley, Eau Claire, Wisconsin; Even Start Project, Manhattan/Ogden, Junction City/Fort Riley, Kansas; Webster Groves Even Start, Rock Hill, Missouri; and Family Intergenerational Literacy Model (FILM), Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The report also notes that these successful programs illustrate the variety of ways public funding, augmented by community collaboration, can provide the essential components of family literacy and meet the specific needs of an undereducated population. The report is divided into the following sections: Introduction to Family Literacy; Two Routes to Program Validation; Program Profiles; The Essential Components of Family Literacy; Community Involvement: Meeting the Needs; Special Features of the Programs; and Resources for Family Literacy.
