The Latino Family Literacy Project™ provides parent involvement programs in public schools for English Learners. Staff and community liaisons attend training to provide our programs for Spanish Speaking Parents and can attend an in-person workshop or an online webinar. A curriculum binder is provided for each attendee and each attendee will receive FREE ongoing program support.
The parent programs are designed to establish family reading routines for Spanish speaking parents to meet your Title III goals for a culturally relevant parent involvement program. Teachers learn a language acquisition method and a step-by-step literacy instruction process. It involves family reading for parent involvement, vocabulary development, and English language development for parents and their children.
Each program engages the parents in reading with their children. All program materials, books and culturally relevant curricula used are bilingual and in a simple format – perfect fit for Title III program requirements with a focus on ESL, Dual Language programs, or Migrant programs.
This program can be used to teach English language skills in a proven successful model. Forms in the program are customizable in Spanish and English and are provided at the workshop training.
Each program has a built-in evaluation process to measure the success of what the parents learned in class in the 10-week program. Our latest program outcome is that 97% of parents who attended the program read more often to their children.
Our focus is to help parents be successful with increasing the academic success with their children in a way that works for the family, using culturally relevant and meaningful activities.
