RDG 504 - Family Literacy Connections

(Cr: 3)
How can educators involved in family literacy initiatives be confident they are providing beneficial rather than intrusive experiences? What role should the community play in family literacy issues? How can schools, families, and organizations better collaborate to enhance literacy development for both children and their caregivers? This course presents a wide variety of school-based and organizationsponsored programs and initiatives that will address these questions as practitioners learn how others are responding to the literacy needs of students and families. Participants will gain insight into how to develop new programs as well as conduct community discourse on the nature of family literacy, how it works, and how it can support student learning.
