Literacy Memories of Hispanic Parents: How the Past Influences the Present
Page, Larkin
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v6 n2 p94-107 Win 2018
Educators continue to advocate for increased family involvement in the education system, so there is value in understanding the reading and literacy histories, beliefs, and actions of parents. It is important for educators to recognize these dynamics because parents not only bring their children to school but they also "bring" the prior memories and experiences of their own schooling. An appreciation of the educational histories of parents, especially in the context of their literacy experiences, can contribute to understanding the perspectives of families, their motives, and actions with schools and teachers in the present.
