The Latino Family Literacy Project™ provides district-wide workshops and offers a set of powerful benefits for teachers and for Hispanic families, such as:
1 – A Cohesive District Plan. A district-wide workshop provides cohesiveness and an overall plan for the whole district or a select group of schools within the district. By bringing together the key participants at all the targeted schools, the district can roll out a consistent approach that allows for scaling, effectiveness, and support across the district.
2 – Convenience. The district is able to bring everyone involved in English language learner activities together in one place at the same time. The workshop can be held at district headquarters, or a mutually agreed upon local location. The program includes a continental breakfast for all participants, and 3.5 hours of comprehensive program training. District leaders will have an opportunity to convey a universal message to the participants, set a tone and level of commitment that will resonate throughout the district.
3 – A New Framework for English Learner Parents for Engagement. A district-wide workshop allows teachers to learn a new framework and understanding of Latino parents and English language learner families. Teachers learn how to engage parents through a 10-week series of sessions and how to use appropriate materials with parents. They also learn how to develop fun activities that parents actually look forward to doing and attending the sessions at the school.
4 – Built-in Program Evaluations. 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.
Make your job a whole lot easier and schedule a district workshop. Begin by selecting a month and several dates that could work for your district and then communicate with our office to discuss your specific needs for Parent Involvement. We’ll set up the date, a continental breakfast, and an exceptional workshop to transform the Parent Involvement with English Learners at your schools.
