Connecting Families through Community: An English as an Additional Language (EAL) Family Literacy Project – Final Report (2012)

This report outlines a project designed to create an effective English as an Additional Language (EAL) family literacy program that would help newcomer families in Saskatchewan and Prince Edward Island, and could also be used in other Canadian provinces.

The project involved direct input from newcomer families, who identified areas of focus and were involved in the program development itself. The end result is a 10-module family literacy program that aims to provide participants with tools to enhance their literacy experiences and acquire some of the English language skills necessary to participate fully in a knowledge-based economy and society.

In this report, the authors outline the stages of the project, including a literature review; recruitment of families for the project; needs assessment; development of the modules; program implementation; and post-program feedback.
