Building on Existing Strengths To Increase Family Literacy. ERIC Digest Number 145
This digest focuses on strategies for reaching families and increasing family literacy that reflect the strengths families already have. The Federal Even Start Family Literacy Program, authorized in 1988, is the catalyst for much of the family literacy activity nationally. Funded programs must adhere to Even Start's core organizational curriculum, and evaluation requirements and goals, but program models vary greatly and the degree to which programs reflect and involve the families they serve varies, although multisite programs tend to be more generic in organization and curriculum.
