Roskos, Kathleen; Neuman, Susan
Early Child Development and Care, v89 p57-73 1993
Examined the influence of six African-American parents' involvement in literacy-related activities at Head Start programs on their self-confidence, responsivity, and sensitivity to children's emerging literacy behaviors. Based on interviews, observations, and the parents' own self-observations, discovered improvement over 20 weeks in the parents' communication abilities and their self-confidence and efficacy as teachers.
