Reflecting on Essential Elements for Comprehensive Family Literacy: A Workbook. Ohio Family Literacy Statewide Initiative.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Early Childhood Education.
Family literacy program development is a complex process involving numerous partners, integration of four components (adult education, early childhood education, parent education and support, and adult and child interactive activities), and a blending of resources for ongoing program support through collaboration. This workbook offers the following items: (1) a process for educators and service providers for forming successful collaborations related to family literacy; (2) questions for examining key elements of effective, four-component family literacy programs; and (3) a form for development of action plans no matter the stage of collaboration formation or program development. The 13 sections of the workbook cover the following topics: community needs; collaboration; action planning; instructional services; support services; site selection; recruitment and retention; integration of components; program management; staff selection; staff development; setting up shop; and evaluation and accountability. Three appendixes contain the essential components of family literacy, a list of common partners for family literacy program development, and family literacy goals. (KC)
