Summary
"In this book the home-school connection is viewed as a two-way road where parents and teachers learn from each other, in order to make learning relevant to children. Family literacy is presented as parent involvement within a "learning at home" perspective. The Home-School Connection provides information and support to those working with culturally and linguistically diverse families." "The Project FLAME program used as context for this book is a comprehensive family literacy model supported by a strong sociocultural framework, based on current research on cultural ways of learning and theories of multiliteracies and discourse. The model highlights the relevance of parents' knowledge, cultural ways, and discourses in sharing literacy knowledge with their children." "Demographic data confirm the steadily increasing numbers of culturally and linguistically diverse students in U.S. public schools today. A pressing need exists for models and programs that effectively serve the educational needs of this population. Addressing issues related to development, implementation, and effectiveness of a program model that fulfills this need, this book is an essential resource for educators, community workers, and researchers interested in the relevance of the home-school connection in relation to children's school success."--BOOK JACKET
