Abstract

This capstone identifies the process of creating a family literacy program to support literacy growth. The research question addressed in this project was, How can an effective parent outreach program impact literacy achievement and foster a community network at an urban charter school? It documents a teacher's creation of a family literacy program that builds literacy communities through school-home partnerships and literacy activities. The author documents the process of creating a family literacy program following researched methods that validate the creation of the curriculum. The results of the research help focus the capstone on two very important aspects of school-home partnerships. 1.) Breaking down common barriers between home and school partnerships. 2.) Creating clear lines of communication between home and school.
