The Latino Family Literacy Project™ provides proven, cost-effective parent involvement programs and training for teachers to provide meaningful programs for English Learners. Our programs are currently used in 17 states throughout the United States.
The literacy programs and training workshops are designed to establish family reading routines for Spanish speaking and English speaking parents and their children at your school site. The Project introduces the teachers to a language acquisition method and a step-by-step literacy instruction process. It involves family reading for Hispanic parent involvement, vocabulary development, and English language development for parents and their children.
Each of our age specific programs engages the parents in reading with their children, reflects the experiences of Latino families, and is centered around universal themes. All materials, books and curricula used are bilingual and in a simple format and are a perfect fit for your Title I and Title III program requirements, Dual Language programs, and ESL or Migrant programs. This program can be used to teach English language and Spanish language skills and is bilingual for your convenience, and has multilevel English language lessons for English Learners.
Each program has a built-in evaluation process to measure the success of what the parents learned in class and includes at home skill-based activities for parents and children that support the state standards for each specific age group.
