A Culturally Responsive Literacy Program for Hispanic Fathers and Their Children
Saracho, Olivia N.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v9 n4 p281-293 Oct 2010
This study examined a language and cultural literacy program for Hispanic fathers to promote their children's literacy development. This study had two phases: (a) training the teachers and (b) educating the fathers. The results indicated that the fathers learned how to promote their Hispanic children's literacy development using their family's language, culture, interests, and experiences. Fathers differed in their use of language, culture, literacy strategies, literacy experiences, and responses to the literacy program. (Contains 2 notes.)
