Some parents feel threatened by school since they have differing cultural backgrounds, limited literacy ability, or speak another language. What would you do as a teacher to make these parents more comfortable so that they would be willing and able to help their children with their literacy development?


Part 2

Family Literacy Assignment  Please look at the attachment for the example !!!!

For this assignment, you will develop an original activity for your students to take home and work on with their families.

The assignment should be formatted as if you were actually sending it home with your students. So, feel free to use different fonts, make it colorful, and use images. Just be sure that it is readable.

Your Family Literacy Assignment should clearly state the 1-2 literacy skill(s) that you are focusing on. You must include clear instructions for your families & students so they understand what is being asked of them. Be sure to consider the diversity that may exist in your classroom. For example, what if everyone is not able to gather supplies or print something at home? Including a sample of what you are expecting (a diagram or picture) is expected, if you are asking your students to create a project. Also, consider an opportunity to have your families join you in the classroom if/when students share their assignments.

Feel free to utilize the texts and activities you are already planning to use for your final lesson plan assignment. You will upload this assignment as a WORD or PDF document in both Canvas and in Folio. Because this assignment will be placed in your portfolio, you will need to indicate the course name and number on the first page of the assignment (EDU203-Language, Literacy, and Phonics). As with all written communication, be mindful of grammar and mechanics.
