Morrow, Lesley Mandel; Young, John
Journal of Educational Psychology, v89 n4 p736-42 Dec 1997
Home and school literacy contexts were connected in a study that involved parents of 28 inner-city primary school children in developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive literacy activities. Pretest and posttest data determined achievement and motivation differences favoring children in the family program over the 28 comparisons not participating in the literacy program. (SLD)
