Connecting Families through Community: An English as a Second Language (ESL) Family Literacy Project – Parent's Guide (2012)

This document is part of a project designed to create an English as a Second Language (ESL) family literacy program.

This component of the program is for parents. It is divided into 10 modules, dealing with such topics as Canada; personal identity; health and wellness; schools and learning; friendship; and foods and nutrition.

Each module contains a variety of activities. Some are specifically for adults, while others are designed for parents and children to do together.

The activities combine language instruction with insights and advice about the Canadian lifestyle. For instance, the module on schools explains the roles played by the principal, vice-principal, homeroom teacher, guidance counsellor, and ESL instructor. Activities include writing a note to explain why a child has been absent from school.
