Without a doubt, children’s experiences during the preschool years affect their later language and literacy skills and achievement. High-quality early childhood education programs are one way in which we support development during these years, but family interactions and home environments also play a crucial role. In this presentation, Kathryn Roberts and Nell Duke, co-authors with Gail Jordan of Engaging Families in Children’s Literacy Development: A Complete Workshop Series and language and literacy education faculty at Wayne State University and The University of Michigan, will explore not only the “why” and “what” of family literacy workshops, but also practical tips for making them work for families. Specifically, participants will have opportunities to learn about six constructs of literacy that are key to later literacy success, specific ways in which all families can integrate those constructs into their daily routines, and (most importantly) how to plan for workshops that will be engaging and well-attended.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
