Community and Family Literacy Engagement (Grades 4-12)

Would you like ideas that support your LCAP goals of parent engagement and literacy achievement? Would you like to find innovative ways to build literacy in the home, especially for our adolescent ELs? We know that parents and other caretakers provide knowledge and experience that children can readily use as they connect to classroom learning. It is important that schools acknowledge this experience as an asset to incorporate into daily instruction while continuing to foster the parents' knowledge of how to develop their child's reading at home.

Come to this workshop and learn how to support school literacy and provide parents with the tools needed to assist their children as they learn to read and read to learn; this includes access to high-interest reading materials in multiple languages, teacher supported at-home literacy strategies, and encouragement for both parents and children as they work to develop literacy practices in their homes.

Families with a richer home literacy environment display higher levels of reading knowledge and skills.
