Exploring parent involvement strategies for students with low oral language and literacy skills
The research question reflects the professional challenge of teaching in an urban classroom. It demonstrates the need for the teacher to continue to look for ways that will help children in third grade become proficient readers. One way that may facilitate reading development is continued oral language development in the child's home language (L1). Research indicates that this support, which succeeds through parental interaction, will help to increase student vocabulary and oral language development. However, while this research did not find a clear interaction, the literature provides ideas to support parent involvement, which may increase reading skills for low language, low literacy learners.
