Family Literacy Practices and Parental Involvement of Latin American Immigrant Mothers
Rivera, Lorna; Lavan, Nicole
Journal of Latinos and Education, v11 n4 p247-259 2012
This article draws upon three years of interviews and participant observation research in the Chelsea Public Schools, to discuss the impact of the Chelsea Family Literacy Program on promoting Latin American immigrant mothers' involvement in their children's education. The authors present the voices of Latin American immigrant mothers who describe how they increased their involvement in their children's as a result of participating in Parent & Child Together (PACT) activities at their children's schools, English as a Second Language classes, and Parent Time sessions in which they shared their parenting experiences with other mothers. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
