Family Literacy Engagement: A Framework for Success
Building a solid foundation of literacy instruction is key to student success. This session intends to review the key touchpoints of literacy stakeholders including those in the classroom, home, and community. Each stakeholder plays a vital role in the discovery, identification, and intervention stages of literacy development. Parent advocacy is critical and schools can curate a relationship that ensures a collaborative partnership where the best decisions for providing evidence-based reading instruction are made for all students. Attendees will discover ways to effectively communicate and create spaces that co-construct positive literacy experiences.
