Welcoming Families: A Parent Literacy Project in a Linguistically Rich, High-Poverty School
Barone, Diane
Early Childhood Education Journal, v38 n5 p377-384 Jan 2011
This article focuses on a parent literacy project that included shared reading and how to support this strategy with families who have a home language other than English and live in poverty circumstances. Literature about the importance of shared reading to children's literacy development is shared in tandem with the importance of building parent and school collaborations. Details are provided about the literacy project of working with families at Greenbrae Elementary with supporting photographs and parent comments. Strategies to bring such an approach to other schools are described with many pragmatic concerns addressed.
