Literacy Programs with Parent Involvement
Montgomery, Joel R.
Online Submission
The purpose of this working paper is to review current literature on literacy programs for parents of English language learners (ELLs). The paper includes a summary of five literacy programs for ELL parents throughout the United States of America. Four of these were system-wide interventions affecting more than one school or classroom. Each program had a positive impact on student academic achievement. Three programs focused on empowerment for both students and parents. The most powerful interventions were supported by the community, parents and school and school district personnel and included varying degrees of involvement by university educators. Three interventions specifically targeted students and parents at the secondary level. The paper concludes by summarizing the success criteria shared by the programs.
