National Reading Conference Yearbook, v47 p221-31 1998
Describes a school-based family-literacy program initiated by a first-grade teacher in an inner-city school. Describes how joint parent/child classroom activities and parent/teacher discussion sessions (1) provided opportunities for parents to explore their own and their children's uses of literacy; (2) increased their knowledge of literacy strategies; and (3) developed positive attitudes about literacy learning at home and school. Outlines five crucial program elements. (SR)
