Literacy Engagement and Parental Development through Even Start Family Literacy Participation
Robinson, Petra A.
Journal of Research and Practice for Adult Literacy, Secondary, and Basic Education, v1 n1 p19-29 Spr 2012
This study examined how parental participation in Even Start programs contributes to family literacy engagement and parental development. More specifically, its primary aim was to develop an understanding of how parental participation in the program influences their reading behaviors and other literacy practices as well as to highlight observed changes and transformations in their parenting practices. While research exists on the influence of participation in Even Start Programs for participating children, this paper begins to fill the gap which exists on the program's influence on parental literacy engagement and parental development.
