“We think of family literacy as a way to teach reading in family settings, and that’s actually a very small part of what happens in family literacy programs.” - Dr. Denny Taylor
Family literacy is also known as intergenerational learning. It looks at how parents, children and other caring adults use literacy in their everyday lives at home and in their communities. There are opportunities to create shopping lists, follow recipes, sort socks, throughout the day and these are opportunities to learn together. Family literacy programming can take many different forms, as well.
